Since nobody else has done so, I'll post a comparison between the newsreel compass and a Gurley.

... but the photo of Peggy is not the one used in the TFA image. I believe the one below is much closer. I just need to figure out how to convert it to the old print look like bobatrek did, any ideas?

I gave it a shot :)

I'm about to purchase a vintage Gurley compass, but I noticed the one in Endgame is different. In Endgame the directional text is green, the sight reticle piece isn't a perfect circle, and the hinge bar is completely different. It looks like the one they're using now is a modern reproduction.

This cheap Chinese one on Amazon looks the part for example:

You are absolutely right, I came to the same conclusion, and picked up two of those Stansports. I was studying the Endgame trailer and referencing compasses to determine which to buy. The hour glass shape hinge, number spacing and extended eurostile "S" all match that Stansport.

I ordered a vintage one off of eBay the other day and stuck the pic in. I also put a few more of the pictures in a sunny window to hopefully get the newsprint to yellow a bit.

Hi, still waiting on a compass, but would anybody be able to provide the size dimensions needed for the printing the Peggy photo? Cheers.
