Earlier today (22nd November 2012) David Whitney popped into the shop to visit Nigel. Lucky for us he didn’t come empty handed! He brought with him his stunning pocket sun-dial compass found with his XP Goldmaxx.
Found in Shropshire, England, the beautiful find measures approx 43mm in width and 18mm in height. This late 17th Century sun-dial features engraved Roman numerals around the face of the compass, the glass is a little dirty but still intact. David explained that the piece dates from 1695-1705 and that he found the compass closed which explains why the delicate paper inside is in good condition.
