Vintage Ritchie Hand Held Marine Compass 1970's For Sale

This is a 1970's Ritchie Hand Held Bearing Compass. I purchased this at a garage sale in a town along Lake Superior. I found a picture ad of the compass on the internet which you can see below. This apparently was used as a sighting compass by looking into the sighting window that had an illuminated sighting dot. You would aim at a reference point while holding down the buttons. When you had the reference point sighted, you would release the buttons which in turn would lock the dial so you could get a reading. The compass and lock button still works. There is no illumination due to dead batteries I would assume. There is an additional sight groove fastened on top of the compass that works quite well for shooting a course or taking a bearing. This comes with a vinyl storage pouch.
