1943 U.S. Navy Mark I Illuminated Compass, Lionel Co. N.Y. BU. of Ships Navy STD.

You are considering a vintage US Navy 7.5-Inch Illuminated Compass produced for the Bureau of Ships by The Lionel Corporation of New York City. Its condition is considered Very Good, showing typical wear consistent with a piece of its age. The glass shows minor blemishes below the first layer and thus would benefit from a light cleaning, that said, there is no significant damage or scratches. The metalwork is holding up well and shows typical light wear from age. It comes in its original wooden carry box, its original gray paint is holding up well with only minor scratching and patchiness and no significant damage or cracks. Its radioactive illumination still works and looks good in the dark.
