Default lensatic compass

Hi, mates !

Today´s flea market find, an lensatic compass, issued in the U.S. Army.

Manufacturer:
THE LIONEL CORPORATION N.Y.
Year, and, month of manufacture:
9-52

Interesting, to find such an item here in Austria.
The seller was a merchant from Carinthia.

IMO an compass, used in the Korean war, (maybe, later, also in Vietnam ?), am I right ?

Best regards,
R.

That would be the same Lionel company that made toy electric trains for so many years.
