Antique Hughes and Sons Husun Sextant England 1947

Antique Henry Hughes & Son Husun Sextant w/ case. Made in England in 1947.The sextant is in excellent working condition. all mirrors and shades are perfect except for the slightest delamination on one of the mirrors. The walnut case has a few hairline cracks , but is 100% stable.
The light works , and just needs 2 AA batteries. Check out the correction numbers! Pretty darned good!
There is a key included , but the lock needs some attention or replacement.

I used this sextant to learn celestial navigation and it proved to be an excellent tool.

Feel free to ask any and all questions.
Asking : $399. obo plus shipping.
