Serial number 8155 was manufactured in 1875 by E.S. Ritchie and sold to TS & JD Negus in New York. This compass was used aboard the whaling ship Josephine built in Bath Maine in 1877. The Josephine sailed out of New Bedford Massachusetts. The compass was brought to our shop in 2006 for minor restoration.
