An early model's cardboard arrow attached with two screws in the lid indicating the marching direction. Note the two thin lines made of radium compound paint. This one has a different shape without the disk in the centre.
Stainless steel lid marked RICHTUNGTHIS COMPASS IS IN GREAT CONDITION WITH SOME WEARING OFF OF THE PAINT ON THE FRONT, BUT OTHERWISE IN GOOD OVERALL CONDITION...WORKS GREAT AND IS ABOUT 2 INCHES LONG.....Note: the apparent dots on each side of the word RICHTUNG are actually fixing screws for the card arrow.The early models had a round or oval loop fixed to a stem as on pocket watches. After World War II, this was replaced by a riveted loop, less aesthetic, but cheaper and more resistant. Many lids still had the hole for the loop fitting.
