    Here are two compasses that were made in Germany. One is made of a bright metal case, and the other is made of bronze .Unfortunately, there are no makers' marks on either. If anyone could ID the origin of these for me, I'd be very appreciative.

    And I'd also be grateful for any values that can be assessed to them.

    Thanking each of you for your interest and input.

      Ted, I have a case, minus the compass. I does not have any makers marks on it, but the outside of the cover is marked:
      ENG. DEPT.
      U.S.A. 1918
