This vintage surveyor's tool is a Dietzgen transit level or theodolite, with the original case. The serial number (53392) seems to indicate it was made in the 1950s or 1960s, but the sources we've found aren't complete. The patent marked on the spirit level mount (2567553) was issued in September 1951. There is a tag inside the case showing it was serviced in 1988, whatever that means. It has the dovetailed wood case, a tabletop mount, and an assortment of other accessories are included.

As you can see in the photos, the instrument is in excellent condition with very little flaking of the paint. The metals are still bright, and both spirit levels are intact. The leather strap and handle is a bit worn, but intact. The case has some wear and dust, and the wooden handle may be worn, or a field repair. Otherwise, it's in very good shape, and made exceptionally well.

Displays beautifully, and as far as we can tell, everything works perfectly.
