A genuine Reproduction of WW2 issue wrist compass as used by Airborne troops on D-Day. This fully functional example is NEW and nicely marked on the reverse: CORPS OF ENGINEERS U.S. ARMY MANUFACTURED BY SUPERIOR MAGNETO CORP. L.I. City N.Y. U.S.A This compass, official known as Compass, Wrist, Liquid-filled, was made by two manufacturers, Superior Magneto and Taylor. The compass was usually seen worn on the wrist (duh!), but also over the sleeve, the shoulder loops, webbing, or at the ankle over the jump boots. Wrist compasses were used both by officers and enlisted men, unlike the lensatic compass, or marching compass, which was normally reserved for officers, NCO’s or men on a special mission. On this Superior Magneto models, there are 4 round holes, and no arrow, all set between and not on the compass directions. Inside, there is no spiral and the needle is of a slightly different design. As with the Taylor, it was tipped with luminous paint, but it no longer holds a glow. Like the Taylor, it has a white painted arrow on the glass (plexiglass), but the designs of the arrows are different. The arrows are not just painted or transferred onto the glass, but engraved into the glass and filled with white paint.
