This is a vintage wooden tripod made in the USA used by the US Army as a surveying tool. The piece is in fair condition but does show moderate signs of use, i. None of these affect use of course.
The head is made to accommodate a large format camera but does not come with the mounting screws. Head may also be removed and replaced with something else. It measures approximately 40" collapsed and 65" extended and weighs 13.15 pounds.
If you intend to use it with an actual camera and not as a display please note that the legs will not hold weight unless the feet have a surface they can dig into a bit--carpet, grass, dirt--otherwise they will splay out on a smooth surface.
