    Default WWII Compass?

    Hello gentlemen

    This has been offered for sale and as I know nothing about WWII german navigation equipment, I would like to draw on your huge knowledge.

    It is on offer as a german pilots back-up compass. Supposedly it was worn by a Messerschmitt Bf-109 and "liberated" from the plane when the pilot bellyflopped some where in England during WWII.

    Any idea as to whether or not this is WWII german and ofcourse as to what the value might be?

    Is there anything I should be on the lookout for concerning the compass (i.e. markings etc.)?

    I just noticed this thread and they look quite similar

    I thank you in advance.

    Thanks stuka.

    One is at 50 quid and the other at 65 quid, but auctions are not over yet.

    I just surfed the net a bit and found them at 150 USD - would that be a fair price (150 USD)?

    I gather they are a quite common item then?

    Actually they are not common. $150.00 is a fair price for an aviators wrist compas.
