This telescope was bought in Malta in 1913 by a seaman Stark, U.S. Navy. Stark served on the collier U.S.S. Cyclops . In 1913 the Cyclops was part of a large goodwill cruise to the Mediterranean including the battleship Arkansas. The Cyclops disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle in 1918 with no trace of the crew or wreckage. Seaman Stark is listed as missing in action. Obviously he didn't have the telescope with him.
