Small beautiful solid brass compasses are very hard to find. These are made in India and to a high standard. The brass stock on both is well polished. The Pocket Marching Compass is only 1¾" in diameter (½" thick). It’s great to carry with you when on a walk.
The classic Brass Lensatic-Style Compass) is 3" in diameter, has physical built-in “sights” and an internal mirror to aid in reading the bearing or azimuth of a distant object directly off the compass card. Includes an inclinometer. When closed, an automatic internal lock protects the magnetic needle. It weighs 10oz and would be carried in your backpack.
