A kitschy, even cheesy, toy compass from the 1950s. This is the kind of thing you'd find at Wall Drugs. The compass is 1-3/4" in diameter and 5/16" thick. Stamped aluminum, acrylic face, printed paper escutcheon face plate with the eight directional bearing indicators. Surprisingly accurate, but "works" is a loose term, I wouldn't take it hiking as my sole connection to civilization! Fun mid-century, Dime Store find, limited quantity...
As with all offered ARTifacts, these come in “as found” condition.
