    T.Z.F. 3a early

    Hello folks,

    Just arrived a nice TZF3a in green color and low serial.
    I assume it is a early issue, as the other ones I saw were all dunkelgelb with high serials.
    Needs a good cleaning with lot of surface rust.
    Optic is clear, but some flecks to remove.(will have to do a pic with a better background)
    Typical panzer sight with triangles, plus a semi circular scale with black pointer, from 0 to 12.

          Well,
          Not in my scope of collection. The second one I see in 10 years, so I was glad to have it and take pictures for reference. As always, need cash for other toys

              Very interesting!

              This is actually a mid production model, despite the low production number.

              I have a question please, the laying reticle, does it have 6 small triangles and one big triangle, or does it have 6 inverted Vs and one big triangle?

              I am interested to know to determine the exact production variant of the TZF3a.

                Hello,

                They are all full triangles.
                I can try to do a better pic of it, if you like.
                What are the specs of the early, mid and late production ?

                Cheers

                      Thanks for the info.

                      Any idea when the switch between series occurs ?

                        Only rough, not exact:

                        1st is below around 600 (or even lower)
                        2nd is about above 600 to about 900
                        3rd is above 900
