Third pattern issue Marschkompass “A” with anodized lid made by F.W. Breithaupt & Sohn, Kassel (clk)
Excellent German army issue compass or Marschkompass. This is the the third pattern issued example made with a bakelite housing and with a capital “A” on top which indicates a clockwise 64 Mills direction. The production of this third pattern started post May 1944. The compass is nicely marked cxn which indicates production by Emil Busch A.-G., Rathenow. The compass is in good used condition and features a blueish anodized lid which is rare to encounter and typical for this manufacturer! Nice late war “A” marked compass!
