Sorry to hear that, I would be pissed if I found out my US military grade compasses were thrown away. Even if they were broken.Nice video, I regret that my two USGI ones were thrown away.
I can fix them; they are very easy to open up and service.
The used military grade marching compasses cost easily twice as much as a brand new Chinese knockoff.
The Cammenga 3H models cost very easily 5 to 6 times than the Chinese ones.
