By W & L.E. Gurley, a world war II compass. This piece is extremely radioactive! I was picking up radiation standing a foot away from a glass case at an antique shop! The radium paint emits beta particles, which penetrate the skin and damage cells and gamma rays, which pass directly through you. Wearing this with the dial facing you for long periods of time would definitely increase your risk of developing cancer later in life...
