This instrument is a wonderful original example of a vintage Navy ships compass. This piece measures 11.75 inches tall, the base is 9 inches in diameter, and weighs 16 pounds. The body is made of copper and brass, with the original gray paint still present. The compass still functions correctly, but likely could use a fine tuning. There is a brass ID plate that says PATT. 01151A COMPASS No C 2762. The letters AFT are stamped into the body below the ID plate. The upper half of the body does lift off, exposing the inner compass housing. Please refer to the photos for additional information.
