    Default Need help valuing a Sextant from 1918

    ww1 Sextent Stanley London 1918 no.3717

    After looking into the markings abit more and searching quite a few pages via google i managed to find out more about this item, i found one remarkably similar by Hughes & Son London.. better condition going for $1220
    the similar one was found at this website
    WWI Military Brass Pocket Sextant by Hughes & Son London. - Gilai Collectibles




    i can get more pictures on request

    I hope i can get more information on this as it was my late grandfathers.. he never actually knew what it was hehe

    This one looks a bit similar, from 1911 though:

    Very similar although the one shown does not have the british army mark
    im really unsure about this now as the one you provided has sold for 50 euro's or so yet the other one i found in better condition has sold for $1700 lol, do you think it would be worthwhile taking it into an antique store to have it valued?

    wont hurt, another idea is to list it on ebay with a really high reserve just to have a feeling of what people will be willing to pay for it and how high in demand it is
