This is an 1862 Stanley London Transit Survey Compass.  Our research analysts believe this is an original and NOT a reproduction (New Beginning Antiques in business 40+ years).  Research shows there are several India reproductions in Brunton models.  The facsimile of this Stanley model was stamped on top BRINTON COMPASS, 1862, STANLEY LONDON.  This is stamped simply “Stanley London 1862”.  It is made of brass and steel with top stamped Stanley London 1862 and on compass face is Stanley London.  It appears to have been cleaned to show all details and brass accents.  There are side screws to rotate inside bevel showing degrees.  Compass has the seldom found base extension to mount onto a tripod.  In most cases they were used for geological surveying.  The mirror is in good condition with slight foxing around clear see through area.  It is in good operational condition.    Size is 4” diameter x 4” high.   This is a beautiful piece for collectors of old Compass’s.
