Buying Any Sextant
Our Sextants are New Reproductions of Antiques .
Some are shiny brass and others are antiqued brass. All are solid brass.
We make no guarantees, but we request all sextants be Fuctional, this means they can have final adjustments, calibrated and actual use, accuracy is up to the person doing the final adjustments, calibration, their knowledge, their information on use, patience, practice, and a few things I forgot to mention. As for the sextant, all it does is measure an angle from 2 far off objects, ( 1 building top to another, mountain top, level street to top of building, or even water to object in sky ).
And yes reproductions are handmade copies of antiques, they are not suppose to look perfect, minor scratches, nicks, worn looking spots are suppose to be there. We have sold these for many years and have never had one of our functional sextants comeback that could not be calibrated.
