Description


You are bidding on an EXCELLENT and VERY RARE example of a WW1 German Air Force / Fliegertruppen Aircraft Altimeter!  Produced circa 1918, it was used in various monoplanes, biplanes, and bombers.

 

Made of brass and steel by Luft, this 8000m altimeter is in VERY NICE used condition!  Some marks and wear, but nothing that detracts.  The glass is 100% intact, and features a rotating bezel that indicates, “Flugplatz Anzeiger Verstellbar”, so the pilot could set the current altitude at the airfield.  Two of the mounting tabs are missing, but those could easily be copied/replaced if one wished.  The side-mounted correction table is still attached!  Appears to respond to air pressure, but not sure how accurate.  Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display! 


 
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

 Payment should be made within 7 business days at the end of the auction unless buyer contacts me for other arrangements. I accept all forms of payment. 

 

 ——————- SHIPPING —————– 

My goal is to ship within 7 days from auction end. However, depending on circumstances, it may take up to an additional 1 week from receipt of confirmed payment. If you need it shipped sooner, please let me know and I will do our best to accommodate.

  

——————- 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.
