    Be careful about buying from Nautical Antiques.  The quality level of 
    their instruments is often advertised to be much higher than they 
    really are.
    
    I bought two sextants from this place in 1997 and they were really beat 
    up.  It was one of the few bad experiences I had buying things on the 
    Internet to that time.
    
    Just be warned and have low expectations!
