    There ya go - I could have sworn it was made from metal - again, should have asked prior to saying anything.

    Thanks for the updates.

    Cheers

    Its definitely a signaling / rescue mirror , private purchase , designed to be kept in plane in case of emergency landing.
    Look at the wafers in lens , designed to reflect light . Very early light refracting technology , that would be used in lenses with backlighting construction later on.
    Very Cool and Super Rare

    Hmm - I tend to think - if I'm reading your post correctly - the wafers you refer to is actually a reflection showing some galv iron sheeting.

    Of course, I could be wrong.

    It may not even be military. 'Aero' could simply be
    a brand name.

    Ha , I could be wrong too , lol , my eyes playing tricks on me. Ive seen small signaling mirrors in the past with non flat mirrors and pattern bases , so thats sent me off on that path.
    I could have sworn it was metal as well and guessed the size to be around 3" diameter.
    So wrong on all points, lol. Thats a shame, thought it was something really cool
