You are bidding on a VERY NICE and BOXED example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe 12V 20W Staurohr (Pitot Tube), Fl. 22261, as used on many German Fighters, Bombers, and Transport Aircraft!
This 24V/230W instrument was located on the leading edge of the wing and measured the true airspeed, sending a signal to the main instrument panel. The Speedometer then indicated to the pilot the current velocity.
Made of brass and steel, this piece is in AMAZING unused condition. Though it is VERY solid, there are some some slight marks and scratches, but NO damage! The original box is included, that features a faint Fl. 22261 stmped onto the front. Subsequently, the original WW2 part number was crossed out, and then the pitot tube was re-finished post-war…withi post-war stamps added. 100% this is of WW2 German manufacture, and re-stamped later. I have shown a similar one used by the Me109 in the last photo. A FANTASTIC addition to any aircraft collection, display, or restoration project!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

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.

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.
