Default 10x80 flak set on eBay w compass

Wow, guys, this set on eBay even has the compass. Looks like a very nice overall set from a veteran that shipped it home.

It’s a bit on the high end but if you see what they are pulling in Europe it’s was an acceptable price. If I had the I would have been on it like white on rice.

The search light rig only had a 14000 production run according to Peter of Eye of the Flak. So this is a desirable rig.

Again if I had the dosh I would have wrangled it.

Out of my league, but it appears to have sold.

It doesn't say sold.. Just no longer avail ? Maybe a deal after the fact was made.
Being a scarce maker this usually bumps them up a bit. Being a complete mail home set also helps..

Typically complete boxed sets sell in the 2k range.. Pieced out they bring more as the parts outweigh the set.

Thanks for posting I enjoyed seeing them.

Good point - a compass (on it's own) just sold on Ebay Germany for over 1,000 Euros....

Who knows how bad the internal corrosion might be???!!

" The yoke has considerable external corrosion and does rotate but not smoothly, so there must also be some internal corrosion. The turntable also has corrosion and does not rotate internally."
