This is a sextant. It was my great-grandpas. He got it from a yard sale, I think. Does anyone know anything else about it? Year, how to find the maker, or any other history?

    I love pieces like this. Are there any markings on the sextant? Look very closely all over it.

    I haven't found any. Do you know where I could take it to get some information or where to look to find any markings? Thanks for your interest!

    Here is info on David Stalker who had a shop in Leith. I think you'll find it helpful in dating your sextant.
