1918 HERSCHEDE COMPASS U.S. ENGINEER DEP'T 3" BY 3" BY 1" WOOD CASE WITH BRASS FITTINGS ~ EXCELLENT CONDITION ~ This great old compass is in fine shape. The hinges and snap closing hardware work smoothly, as does the button that automatically holds the needle still when closed - the glass is clear and unmarked, and the needle swings freely. The wood case has few little nicks and very minor scratches, but is in fine shape as well. You will not find a better example of this fine old engineering compass than this one!
