We love anything to do with navigating, maps and compasses. Perhaps it was the influence and lessons taught by a dad who has a great sense of direction. He worked in the control towers of airports during the WWII and Korean War era, and showed us how to read maps and compasses when we were young. The fascination with directions and navigation that started at a young age continues to burn strong in us today.

This is a great old piece which we believe dates to the late 1940s or 50s. The case is plastic, and the silver tone backing seems to be a lightweight metal, with very faint scuffs in the plastic and silver backing. There is a small, thin crack in the plastic case between the N and NW Cardinal and Half Cardinal points (see last photo for a closeup).

It would be a perfect piece to keep with your camping, glamping, hiking or hunting gear. For crafty jewelry artists who could add a bail, it would make a great pendant.

Measures 1-7/8” in diameter and 1/2" deep.

Will ship via USPS First Class.
