    Has anyone noticed that the 5 digit serial number Hensoldt SS Dienstglas Vilaba Roma 6x30's and non SS marked Hensoldt Vilaba Roma 6x30's have the notched eyerings around the ocular lens (like late war ddx and cags) but Hensoldt / bmj 6x30's with higher serials don't?

    My newly arrived Hensoldt Vilaba Roma 6x30 43795 falls between SS marked serials 43254 and 43892 - all with notched eyerings. A quick search around the internet shows;

    All Vilaba Roma marked;

    42657 ss Dienstglas - notched eyering

    42664 ss Dienstglas - notched eyering

    43254 ss Dienstglas - notched eyering

    43795 non ss Dienstglas - notched eyering mine

    43892 ss Dienstglas - notched eyering

    470208 non notched eyering

    Thank you for attaching photos. Maybe now it will dispel doubts about the originality of these binoculars.

    I am not upset or anything of the sort, I just wonder why it's so hard for some people to be polite.

    A wonderful collection and I for one have learnt something from this thread but I wonder why the above member has to be so rude and aggressive.

    A simple apology would now be appropriate from the naysayers.

    Binocular rooms are a well known fantasy item from the 70s, you could buy them from adverts in the back of gun magazines. I think it was 2000 binoculars plus the room and shelves for $2.50

    I was thinking the same. Although I think he’d argue black is white.

    Thanks for confirming that ... but that wasn't really the point. Of course that happened a lot and not just in Poland..
    The point was, as you point out, that removal of offensive markings was usually done when continuing to use the object after the war. It makes less sense to do that for stuff that ends up abandoned on the battlefield.
    Not suggesting this is evidence that will change people's opinion on your bino's, just something I don't recall seeing on battlefield relics.

In the US, there are many items that veterans legally took away - they cared about nice items without removing marks and swastikas.

    In 1945 it was not very benefiting to be an SS member.....near the city ENNS in Austria was an place where soldiers disarmed and chuck away here stuff in bomb craters.
    The digger goes there for awards and in 2004 he found an bomb crater with technical stuff as radios, binoculars and and.
    If I compare the shoulder of the tan colored bino to the villaba, I see no different.


    More details I didnt know, I got this binos for free because he know I collect binos.

    Fantastic collection!

    Now I am no expert on this at all, but why would the SS Dienstglas marking be scratched out on a ground dug item?

    And also, I notice the other plates with the Vilaba Roma and SS markings are in a remarkably good condition when compared with the other items..
