Husun sextants made by the Henry Hughes and Son company are famous for their solid bronze frames and rugged dependability.
Here's a Husun with a little history. Made early in 1945, it received its certification 13 April of that year. It was acquired by an American seaman, Frank Chelchowski of Baltimore in May, and cleared for customs on 17 May.
The instrument is in good, serviceable condition. It features a modern micrometer drum. A sighting tube and the original 2.5 power scope. The case is mahogany with box-joined corners and a green felt lining. The lock is working and comes with its key.
Also included is a 1943 copy of Cugle's Practical Navigation.
This is a good, working sextant that is ready for sea.
