What I offer you today is one of the objects recovered in a German aircraft auction of the second world war, questio and other instruments were discovered in a depot of east europe 60 meters deep in the caves where the indocubated Germans were producing airplanes, and above all new reaction prototypes during the Second World War.

It is a speedometer that was present on many German warplanes, such as the Ar79, Ju52, Me108, Bu181, He111 Do17, and Do24.
