An arguably beautiful replica of the famous pocket compass that guided the Corps of Discovery on their search for an across-continent water passage to the Pacific Ocean (without a doubt, the most fruitful "failed" expedition in American history). 2-1/2" aged bronze compass has a period-accurate paper dial face, and is housed in a 3" x 3" x 1" mahogany case complete with faux wormholes. A wonderful gift to be treasured by any modern adventurer.

Cheep and arrived broken

My kids had just entered a unit in school on Lewis and Clark so I ordered this with expedited shipping. Opened it with flare and excitement --- Bummer, broken in transit and cheaply made. Returned it, have not received notice of receipt of return.

Very nice replica, which went straight to my curio cabinet of survying and mapping instruments. Since I live near the Smithsonian, I plan to take my replica there to compare it with the original.

Gift for a sailor

This item is a Christmas present for my brother who just recently refurbished a 45 ft sail boat and I thought this would look real sharp on the boat. It has a nice wooden case that was made to look old, they did a good job.
