Tamaya sextant

I have a Tamaya 833 Sextant in a wooden case - year 1979. I would like to determine the value of it. It appears to be in perfect condition although there is something missing from the case - there is an empty hole in the packing material. It has a small manual and a key.

I would appreciate any input on how to determine the value, whether it has any special features, or how to find someone who could assess it for me.

Re: Tamaya sextant

Check eBay sales, current and already sold.

Tamaya metal sextants in excellent condition should bring about $400-600.

Re: Tamaya sextant

EBay has a number of these: see tamaya 833 | eBay

Also on EBay there is a Tamaya 1712. Tamaya 1712 Aluminium Nautical Sextant Decor Antique Sextant for Gifts Craft | eBay
However, I can find little info on it and it is quite cheap ... advertised as a reproduction. However it is aluminum and brass. Does anyone have any knowledge about the quality of this one?
