Good God. I have an almost identical set that I got from ebay 8 months ago for 190 us and they have the vets us declaration custom forms. They are very light and a real pleasure to look through. Serial no'1925190 , have wa202 markings on them and the case although my case is brown.

This model often comes up and in good condition...this price seems a bit fishy to me.

Greg

Carles, this is exactly what I 'm talking about when I say that we become our own worst enemies when we offer advice or opnions on these optical items when laypeople show them on this board. Someone gives an unqualified opinion, and suddenly people go insane.

Now, if you look at the history of bids, there is ONE fellow here, 0***a. I do not know who he is, but I know I don't care for him very much, I have battled him in the past, and this fellow is singlehandedly responsbile, IMO, for driving up prices on these items to a ridiculous extent.
Look at the history - 0***a ALL BY HIMSELF jacks up the price on it for three whole days from 600 EUR to 900 EUR. why? for what possible reason did he need to do that on a simple pair of 6x30? he obviously knows this stuff, and probably even participates on this board, so he knows how much its really worth. So why drive it up like that?

So then some poor suckers named 2***u and e***3 have a panic attack and pile on another 500 EUR. All thanks to 0***a creating a panic.

I'd like to call out the winner here and ask him/her what in the world you are thinking!! I'd also like to call out 0***a and ask him/her why he/she does this all the time!

Just when I think I've seen it all...

That's what I meant also Micah, it is Ebay and people going mad to buy the item they don't have. They might just have too much money and not patience enough.

I have had a similar situation with a matching ZF41 + can which went up to EUR 2000. Best bidder simply did not pay, second best did not want it so it stayed in collection. So this price means nothing, it is the market only if it is actually paid and even the the market is what consider most of the participants appropriate.

BTW Dzuo all CZ Dienstglas and blc Dienstglas 6x30 during the early WW2 period weigh in at the 365-370 gram range. Other manufacturers such as cxn Dienstglas 6x30 weighed the same at this early war period. In the early war years these Dienstglas binoculars used aluminium and light weight metals . However ,in the mid thirties G Rodenstock ,Hensoldt and CZ Dienstglas 6x30 all weighed in at approx 700 grams owing to extensive use of brass. Again towards the end of the war some manufacturers ( such as cag and cxn ) appear to have been made from steel or ferrous metals and some of these are in the 674 to 745 gram range.
