This unique new covert compass was inspired by the various escape
compasses developed during WWII and issued to Allied airmen and
commandos as part of their escape & evasion kits. Unlike standard
military compasses, due to specialized requirements escape compasses
were mostly very small and of rudimentary design, had minimal markings,
and provided gross magnetic north indication.
Now - 75 years later - we've brought the escape compass to a new level
of covertness. It's completely unrecognizable as a compass - it looks
just like a US nickel. In fact, it actually is one!
When suspended on a thread (there's a special thread channel all around
the coin's side), the "heads" side will always indicate magnetic north!
You supply the thread, but your clothing or nature are reliable sources
if needed. Also available in a Euro coin version.
