The other day Kerry sent me an email asking if I had this item shown on eBay. I already had it, so thought I would show it.
It is a pocket size sun dial in a brass case made by the Ansonia Clock Co.
It has a tin chart in the lid so you can determine your location, longitude, latitude, degrees from true north you need to turn to determine your time.
It also has a 10 page instruction booklet.
Thanks for looking,

    I guess you didn't need another one, LOL. Thanks for sharing yours. BTW, I think yours is nicer than the one that's listed, yours also has the pamplet.

    The original or early advertisements of these list:
    Sun Watch No. 40830 $1.30.
    I'll buy duplicates all day long for that price!
