    Hi George
     
    You can have the mirrors re-silvered for a modest cost.  I had mine redone in 2007 for a song.  All of the information about the company I dealt with and the cost will be found here

    Subject: [NavList] sextant replacement mirror

    I just bought a 1975 japanese sextant on ebay ( thank you Richard Reed for the tip). It is in excellent shape, but as advertised the silvering has faded on mirror #2. It should be a simple matter to replace this, but it is not something I can do at the local hardware store. It is 32x48 mm with beveled corners, and is 4 mm thick with the silvering on the back surface. I've emailed PhilaOptics for a quote, but I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions. -George Brandenburg
