Interesting - it looks like the bridge is screwed onto the body. Almost as though two monoculars were bolted together. No doubt we'll soon see it pop up somewhere else.

That “ripple” paint job looks like something out of DR Who.

Presently it is on sale on ebay , some poor sod hs bid up to £71 on it.
God it is a frankenstein if ever there was one.
This seller has listed them as " WW2 Army Binoculars, German WW2"
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WW2-ARMY-...cfe3%7Ciid%3A1

Anyone who puts money on these ........ why do people do this .

So far, the case will be okay for the price.
I wonder if ebay see the offensive bird before it is sold.
I do not intend to tell them.


I don´t know why people will pay for items like these. But I do sell similar stuff. Last week I sold a bunch of homemade diecast copies of german Abzeichen. Buyer wanted something cheap with Swastika´s. That he got. At $ 1,50 a piece

This is certainly not optics.
In fact this is the most lousy glass, I have ever encountered. The 2 shown are even in fairly good condition.

But, I can wonder, what would happen if I put them on Ebay ?
Evil Carlsberg Nazi Soda pop soft drink.

( Maybe Carlsbergs public relation Office would buy them from me. In order to smash them.
I would charge them a nice modest $ 100.- a piece. Don´t like to see a CEO cry.)

Not fake, but, nope, not Nazi either. Just a curious coincidence.

The American 45th Infantry Division used the same symbol but had to change it when the baddies took it over;

a common Native American symbol, as a tribute to the Southwestern United States region which had a large population of Native Americans.

And here's the original bino;

Good luck with that bino. Whoever the seller is.

Last week I was offered an early navy Leitz 7x50. Full company name and a nice very small eagle. Someone had bought it in order to earn some coin, unfortunately, the price initially paid sort of minimized that chance. I politely refrained. Eagles are not really making everything worth the weight in gold.


As for being optimistic... I saw this at a militaria fair in Sweden. Coffee anyone ?

( I have been told other similar items are offered elsewhere. At this fair there were 2 tables full of this )

If you come across any original Kriegsmarine or SS USB drives on your travels, give me a shout.

https://www.cec-promotions.de/_image...go-werbung.jpg

looking completely innocent here...


Or perhaps like these? (Troskab is danish for Treue, In english it would be faithfull or something like that.)

(Some company must have taken that order once. Guess China doesn´t care. Can´t read it anyway, I guess. Found on a fleamarket here.)
