These Binoculars are a fine original example. The Binocular's armoured body has it's original light green finish and have lanyard bars fitted with a leather neck strap. The lenses are protected by heavy duty rubber shrouds. The right shoulder under the rubber shroud is crisply stamped by the lense manufacturer with the Nazi German Wartime code 'blc' which is Carl Zeiss, Jena, together with 7x50 (magnification) & Number '57022'. The binoculars are also fitted with a bakelite lense cover marked 'Benutzer' fitted with rubber retaining cord. These binoculars were originally issued without carry cases and in transportation crates of 10 for use by U-Boat crews. All optics are excellent.
