Description

You are bidding on an EXTRAORDINARILY RARE example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe 0-16km Höhenmesser (Altimeter), Fl. 22326, as used ONLY in the Ta152, He162, and Ho229 fighter aircraft!

 

 This instrument measured the altitude of the aircraft using the surrounding air pressure.  It was located on the main instrument panel.  It was only used in high altitude fighters and jets.

 

Made of dark brown bakelite, this is a SUPERB late-war piece, dating at the end of the war in 1945.  There are no scratches, dents or damage to the bakelite, and the Fl. label is 95% intact, indicating Fl. 22326 (this is also clearly stamped into the face).  The millibar knob still functions, and the original hose is still attached!  EASILY one of the best I have ever seen of this type.  A PERFECT addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!

——————- 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.
