Aircraft Bubble Sextant Kit Type A-8A USAAF
This is an authentic WWII-era Aircraft Bubble Sextant Type A-8A, one of many types used by aircraft navigators aboard bomber and transport aircraft.
Cosmetically the sextant is in very nice condition. We have no way of testing its operation and cannot attest to it functionality. The bubble does not appear in the viewfinder. The serial number prefix of AF-42 indicates a manufacturing order year of 1942.
The wooden case measures 12in wide x 8in deep x 8in high. Included in the box is the battery holder and a hanger.
