Supermarine Spitfire rearview mirror

Supermarine Spitfire rearview mirror

Code: M24119

SOLD

Manufactured by H & S. 'Mirrors, Aircraft, Type B.' Stores reference 27H/2017.  Original rearview mirror as fitted to all Spitfire fighter aircraft from the Mk.II onwards.  Comprises a brass domed casing with an internal bracket mount point, mirrored glass and edge ring bezel.  This is in very good overall condition but has lost the paint finish.  The original mirrored glass is generally very good with no chips or cracks but has minor foxing as seen.  All of the original casing screws remain in place and there is only minor edge splitting adjacent to two of them.  Manufacturer's details, Air Ministry King's crown marks and reference numbers are stamped around the edge of the casing.  Fitted with a mounting bracket and stem, this appears to be of 'original pattern' albeit manufactured in less heavy duty metal than others we've had.  It retains some paint and is marked 'J'.  A scarce and desirable item.  Stock code M24119.
