The Box Tag Reads:

U.S. Navy-Bu. of Ord.
TELESCOPE
Mark LXXIV Mod. 1
Inspector HTM
Made By
Minneapolis-Honeywell Reg. Co.
Minneapolis. Minnesota 1944

and the Tag on the Telescope reads:

U.S. Navy Bu. Ord.
Telescope
Mark 74 Mod. 1
Insp. H.T.M No. 43405
Mpls.-Honeywell Reg. 00.
Mpls., Minn. 1944

Id like to find out more about provenance ie. who the inspector was (H.T.M), what type of ship it was used on and exactly what type of telescope it is?

Any information would be much appreciated.

Hi

We don't deal in antiques, used or collectibles, but you may want to try a Google search to find a collector to have an appraisal done.
