You are bidding on a GOOD example of a 100% ORIGINAL WW2 German Luftwaffe FK5 Führerkompass (Main Compass), Fl. 23211, as used in the early Me109 E & F fighter aircraft!, and Ju87 Dive Bomber!
This instrument indicated the current direction of the aircraft and pointed to magnetic north. It was located on the main instrument panel.
Made of brass and aluminum, this instrument is in used condition! There are some light scratches and marks due to the age, but nothing that takes away from the overall appearance. Sadly, there is a leak at the main seal, so it will need to be resealed to hold fluid. Rear cover is missing, but all data information is still on the bezel and easily readable. Dial still points magnetic north! A VERY RARE early compass, I have indicated it’s location in the last photo. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
