    Great looking set, is it a set for measuring distances on naval maps..

    Zeiss have a great archive I seem to remember and are normally very helpful if you wish to contact them...

    I have a feeling this is an old, perhaps period set, that has had suspect i.e. fake insignia attached. I have never seen an original stubby wing eagle like that before. I would expect to see a serial number etc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    What Ade says I believe is probably true also......................

    From what I can see, the box looks too new and not really period in style.

    Hello, thanks for all your help. I will try and check with zeiss whether they have any information on the item. The photographs are a little misleading, the box is actually jet black not blue as it appears. The other two items are also stamped with german insignia. Thanks again.

    Default Stub Wing Eagle

    Attached is an image of a roundel to a DLV buckle that I hold.

    The stub wing eagles attached to the instruments do seem to have slight similarities to this DLV eagle and swastika.

    Regards,

    David
