1940s Smiths Aircraft Oil Temperature 24 Volt Cockpit Gauge Number 8953

A very nice 1940s Smiths Aircraft Oil Temperature 24 Volt Cockpit Gauge Number 8953, which was used in a WW2 warbird.

This Vintage Scientific Instrument/Gadget/Meter is sold as a collectible only. It is in pretty good cosmetic condition with surface scuffs and scratches. It measured oil temperature in degrees celsius.
