ASR Outdoor Covert Escape Compass US Nickel Coin Points to Magnetic North
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.
