    A rather simple item as this consists of the mirror and the case. This is 3 1/2" x 4" perfect for the shirt pocket. The case has the official boy scout emblem and that green color which seems to be the official color. Fades to greenish tan after excessive exposure to sunlight.
    The mirror is polished steel and makes a fair mirror. The ceiling light can bee seen along with the ceiling. The main purpose of this was to reflect sunlight to use as a signal.
    For using it as a signal someone would try and use Morse code and someone else would try and read it. Good luck with that. Or it can be used for the various low flying aircraft that fly about to tell them you are hopelessly lost and need help.
