WWI USCE Draft Sketching Board Model 1913 & Tripod Kit in McFarlan Motor Co Case
Please read the entire description and review all photos carefully! Up for sale is the pictured United States Corps of Engineers mobile draft set including wood sketch board model 1913 produced by Burke & James Inc. Eastman Kodak Co tripod and mount, Smith & Wesson clinometer, Superior Magneto Corp. Compass, and two folders of blank drafting sketch sheets all in a metal latching briefcase produced by the McFarlan Motor Co circa 1918. The latching case is in rough condition with various dents and rusting to the exterior, but the leather handle is intact. The interior folding tray and leather grip are in good working order and there is a molded wood storage compartment for various components beneath it. The sketch board has a short and shallow crack near the bottom and its bottom face is partially discolored as shown in the later photos. Its compass is missing one screw that has exposed it to the elements, however the locking mechanism still works. Similarly, while both clinometer and compass appear to work, their interiors have been exposed to the elements over time. The compass in particular has a moisture stain and collection of fine silt under its bubble. The entire tripod assembly is present and functioning with the exception of one folding leg that has cleanly broken off at the hinge (shown in photos). All brass components have some amount of discoloration. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or further photo requests, and thanks for looking!
