WWII Altimeter MK XIV. Dated 1940. Spitfire Hurricane Battle of Britain
Here we have a very nice MK XIVB Altimeter which has a stores reference number of 6A/685. Date shown on the face is 1940 which dates it to the Battle of Britain period .
This unit is in good condition and complete. The hands rotate and the bottom dial turns when the knob is moved. There appears to be slight damage to one of the lugs as shown in the photos. However as this is a rear mounted instrument this will not affect its mounting in a panel and will not be visible. Case is marked on the rear with the AM Crown along with Kollsmans mark.
Rated to 35,000 feet this would have been fitted to aircraft such as the Spitfire and Hurricane
A very good example.
