's a fabulous original vintage compass made by the Superior Magneto Corp. of New York. This compass is dated on the lid "6 - 45" for 1945. It is also marked "Corps of Engineers US Army USA". I believe it is made of Bakelite. Compass measures about 2 1/8" in diameter, not including the ring or hinge. The lid flips open to reveal the directions and degrees. The black arm across the dial does pull up out of the way; I neglected to do this in my photos. Overall very good working condition for its age; the dial has yellowed just a bit but all numbers and letters still very much readable. A nice display/collector item!!
