Original 1940 dated Russian compass.
Finns captured a lot of Russian equipment during WW2 and put it to use. This compass was most likely used by a Finn as we got it from Finnish veteran’s estate sale.
The compass is in very good working condition. There is no corrosion on the metal parts, the glass is intact, and the leather strap is also supple.
There is a year stamp 1940 on the back. See photos for details.
