    Re: Sextant on ebay

    This is the reply from the seller:
    Thank for interest to my auction. Sextant is made of aluminium.
    Unfortunately box is not present. In photos you see a key and two corners for adjustment sextant.
    Best regards,
    Vladimir.
    To me that means no certificate.
    Tell me, is it usual for the frame and index arm to have different serial numbers?

    Philip

    I had one of these. It was painted black.

    I have never come across an unpainted sextant (except the cheapo knock off reproductions). It looks like the WWII type used on U-boats (aluminium) but the U-boat sextant was painted black. Also, note the two objects on either side of the alidade.
     
    This sextant looks like it is made out of stainless steel.
     
    Anyone know anything about it?
     
     
    Robert
