This compass was recovered from a shipwreck in Cape Cod Bay, it was brought to us in very sad shape having spent many years at the bottom of the ocean. We were able to carefully resore it to complete working condition. The serial number indicates that it was manufactured and sold to Riggs & Brothers on July 27 1897.
