$1,600.00 - Rare 1929 C. Plath Humberg 25 Sextant - Cert # 12167

Rare C. Plath 1929 Serial # 12167
Premium Quintant/Sextan for Sale

Quality collectors piece C. Plath Hamburg Stubbenhuk 25, bronze frame, quintant in exceptional condition having most of its varnish and black lacquer coating. Original Teak wood case and original key. Complete supplies, tools and original two certificates issued in September 23, 1929 to Boston, USA. Certificate translated from Dutch to English.

It has a 3 1/2 power scope, and a sighting tube for shooting terrestrial objects. The adjustable rising piece allows moving the distance of the telescope from the frame which makes the horizon more distinct under varying light conditions.The bronze arc is calibrated -5 to +135 degrees with a vernier that reads from the right, from 0 to 10 arc seconds. The Serial Number 12167 is engraved on the left lower of the arc and just above an old style “Sun Shooter“ logo as on earlier designs of this make. The sextant has four index shades and three horizon shades.

A quintant has a range of arc of 160° compared to a sextant which reads to 90°. This was helpful in measuring Lunar Distances, which was a means of determining longitude without a chronometer. (compliments of landandseacollection.com information) One was sold for a hire price through their webpage. You can read the following link to confirm the information Rare C. Plath Premium Quintant - Sextant 1928 Mint.

$1600.00 including shipping in the USA only. Can ship abroad with additional shipping charges. Accepted forms of payment, money order, personal check, wire transfer or Paypal. Prefer Paypal
