    Re: Plath sextant numbers

    Thank you for your explanation.
    Now I understand that the problem of
    finding the age of my sextant is even more
    complicated than I thought: I do not have a certificate.
    P.S. By the way your message seems to be an answer
    to a message that I posted on ANOTHER list
    (The sextant list). I don't remember asking the question
    about the age of my sextant on the Nav List:-)
