AUTHENTIC WWII ERA USN BINNACLE AND COMPASS
OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY!
We found this wonderful piece of American history in a barn! It still has the ORIGINAL battleship grey paint on it! Under the paint is a solid bronze binnacle. We decided to leave the piece as is because we didn't want to tamper with the historical look and feel of it. This auction also includes the compass, manufactured by the John E Hand & Sons company of Philadelphia, PA. The compass has a serial number on it in case you want to try and research it! This is a MUST HAVE for any Naval historian, museum, library, or collector. Would also look wonderful as a display piece in a nautical themed restaurant, bar, or other establishment. These pieces can go for nearly double our asking price, and that's just for the binnacle, not including the compass!
