We have been looking for a pocket compass to use on our small boats, and came across the Corps of Engineer's compass from the World War I timeframe. Made by Taylor. Brass case, bar needle, jewel bearing. 1 3/4 inch diameter. Pocketwatch style compass is marked USCE on the outside of the case. These compasses were issued to engineers in WWI and were also available for sale to the public but as unmarked.
