You are bidding on an VERY RARE and BOXED example of a WW2 IMperial Japanese Army Surveying Protractor! This was used by various personnel throughout the war.
Made of brass, wood, and steel by Fugi, and dated 1944, this Surveying Compass is in VERY NICE used condition! It is 100% functional, however there are some marks and scratches from use and age. It comes complete in the original wood box (though the interal wood structure has been removed), and is 100% complete with the original mounting clamp! Al markings and codes are legible, including the date “19” (1944), as well as the Imperial Japanese Army Star acceptance stamp. Almost identical to the German Luftwaffe version, I have shown a similar set-up in use in the last photo. The only one I have seen, it is an EXTREMELY rare item, PERFECT for any collection or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.
——————- PAYMENT —————–
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.
