Pictured is a HARD TO FIND original “Aviation Section Signal Corps U.S. Army Type C No. 201” aircraft altimeter! This is a pre 1918 altimeter, the Signal Corps Aviation Section were renamed U.S. Army Air Service on May 24th, 1918. Made by “TYCOS Rochester NY”. This is also an early altimeter, the serial number on the face “No. 201“. Their is a scratch on the bottom left section, see pictures. Dial knob is intact, works great, face turns like it should, needle moves, unsure if it’s correct or calibrated. Outside mounting ring is painted a tan or desert color. I was unable to find a similar altimeter on the internet, most are later Air Service altimeters. This may have been used on aircraft such as the JN-4 Jenny and Nieuport 28. This RARE aircraft altimeter will make a superb addition to your aviation collection!
