This is an original Korean War North American F-86D Sabre Fighter Jet Pilot's Wet Compass Instrument indicator gauge with mount and light. It has the F-86D part number stamped on it.
This item mounted on the upper right side of the pilots instrument panel. The compass is full of fluid and works and it has a light with wires attached to it. It is 12 x 6 x 6 inches. The F-86 was the first successful fighter to take on the famous MIG-17 during the Korean War.
With its 6 50 cal. Machine guns in the nose the F-86 was a mean fighting machine.
The Sabre Jet ended the Korean War with a very high kill ratio against the MIG-17. Today the F-86 is a prized warbird and several still fly in civilian hands.Thank you for your interest in my auctions.
