Original U.S. WWII U.S.M.C. Clinometer by Schwab & Wuischpard - Japanese Battle Bring Back with Letter of Provenance

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is an S&W (Schwab & Wuischpard, New York) U.S.M.C. marked CLINOMETER complete in the original leather issue case, U.S.M.C. marked with intact belt loop and closure.

Offered in functional very nice original condition, this was picked up by a GI after the Battle of TARAWA or SAIPON both of which he served in and taken home as a War Souvenir.

Enclosed with the Clinometer is a printed statement from the G.I., now preserved in a plastic laminated sleeve, stating the history and describing the use of the instrument. It also states the GI's name as "STAFF SERGEANT BILL OGDEN of Evansville, Indiana."

A fascinating original item issued to the U.S. Marines and recovered by a Staff Sergeant who brought it home and keep for more than 50 years until his death.

These tools are used to measure the steepness of an incline or the height of an object. You hold the clinometer up to your eye, sight through the peephole, and press the wheel release button. The wheel freely rotates inside the housing, showing the grade percentage next to whatever you're sighting up or down. These devices can determine terrain grade, but you can also use them to measure structure heights.
