What is a reasonable value of a Bohli compass? does not appear to have ever been installed
Does it still have value?

No, it's worthless now. Please send it to me and I will dispose of it
properly. :-D

Maybe I should put it on e-bay and see where it goes. Sounds like it is worth more than I thought.

In continental Europe. Not sure if that expanded to the UK.

The ban was because a very skilled pilot could cloud fly without gyro
instruments, just using a Bohli compass. Not banned in the UK because we
allow cloud flying.

Last one I saw sell on Ebay in Europe went for 165 Euro.

They are a valuable piece if in working order.

I truly don't know what it's worth, if anything.

I've read that, properly set up, it can be used to fly in clouds. I've
also read that it was banned in contests in the US for just that
reason. It would be fun to have as a toy, just like that J-8 attitude
indicator that I've had in a box for close to 40 years.
