    Stanley brass sextant
    From: Federico Rossi
    Date: 2003 Feb 23, 19:02 +0100
    I've found a brass sextant whose box carries a plate with "Stanley London 1902" engraved on it.
    It is not in good condition, the scope support seems to have been repaired by soldering and in fact the scope itself doesn't aim perfectly to the horizon mirror.
    I know that Stanley has been manufacturing reproduction sextants, and the fact that the filters seem more colored glass than serious ones makes me suspect mine is one of those repros; at the same time the box seems quite old.
    Can you help me to classify my sextant?
    Thanks.
