You are bidding on a VERY NICE used example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe Kursgeber für Kurssteuerung (Direction Switch for Autopilot), Fl. 23300, as used on early bombers and transports such as the He-111, Ju-86, Ju52, and others!
This switch was a small part of the large autopilot system as used on many early German bombers. This larger system also included the Rudder Machine, Kompass, and Kursmotor. It would allow the pilot to manually change the directional path.
Made of aluminum, this instrument is in EXCELLENT used condition. It was brought back by a US veteran from an downed aircraft, however there is almost NO major scratches or wear! 100% functional, the data label is 100% complete clearly indicating Fl. 23300! VERY hard to find these intact and in this condition, it is the EARLIEST dated Luftwaffe item I ahve owned, and is dated 1931. Sadly, the glass/plexi is missing, but that could be replaced by the winning bidder. I have indicated it’s location on the Ju52 instrument panel in the last photo. A PERFECT item for any collection or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- 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.
