Description
A good example of a genuine antique Sextant dating from the late 19th Century. The frame of the sextant is black and it has a silvered and brass scale reading to 150 degrees. It comes with its original telescope lens, sunshades, mirrors, and movable scale reader arm. It also has extra lenses and a dark end lens. The scale is engraved with the maker's name; "D.McGregor & Co, Glasgow & Greenock" and inside the box is a sticker for what was likely the retailer "Matheson & Co. 68 Tolbooth...Wynd, Leith." The sextant comes in its original fitted wooden case with sections to hold the lenses and accessories. It has a brass cartouche and two brass closing latches. The sextant is in good condition for its age. It has been lightly cleaned and displays very well. The lens and mirrors are undamaged and produce a clear image. All parts move as they should. The box is not without some small knocks, splits, and some minor signs of age but overall it has a nice aged patina. I have not tested the accuracy of the sextant and it is being sold as a collector's item rather than a working scientific instrument. The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions just ask. Approximate Measurements : Box : 10 1/2" (27cm) x 10" (26cm) x 5" (13cm)
