Can you put a present day value on the star plotter. I have a WW2 US Navy one and often wondered what it value was..if any??

Tks

Not a lot I'm afraid, Fergus.
I bought two off eBay about 3 years ago.
First one 15, second one 10. Not a lot of difference in condition between them. Both good.

Cheers
Kris

As a general rule old nautical instruments, to be in the real money have to be contained in a brass-bound mahogany case to attract interest i.e.chronometers, 20th century Mercer 500 19th century Chadwick 1800. Vernier sextants attract more interest than micrometer ones especially if in a ham bone case and Japanese Plath types are out. My star globe commands a fair price due to its rarity being black inscription on a white globe whereas later one were white on a black globe. I base these findings on Miller's Antiques Price Guide 1989
