Sestrel gimballed compass by Henry Browne & Son; 13cm diameter across the compass face, 18xm across the gimballs.

The glass has no significant scratches and all the faces are clear to read. There is no loss of liquid, with the air bubble clearly visible. There are two brass brackets (one was used for attaching the compass in the cockpit, another for the saloon).

The compass was taken off in working order from my 1973 SHE 32C. DCEAD736-0204-4C8E-9AE2-B37958E31947.jpeg4BD55638-3360-47BF-BA86-97C2FAC527BA.jpeg59CE69D3-C230-4507-AB13-F7FBAD003123.jpeg

£25 including secure packaging with MyHermes to UK only (and for the avoidance of doubt that includes NI but I’m not filling out any damn custom forms)

If I may........ don't bother to attempt to fix the small bubble....... it will not interfere with the compass card.......but it will allow the compass to act as a thermometer {unless there is a diaphragm that is working}. I have a compass with a small bubble and at about 22 degrees C it vanishes and below that it grows in size. I could calibrate it and hang a piece of card next to it, but have not got around to that yet.
