    Do you happen to have another close up pic of the wiring on the end of the cord? as well as the handle grips? are the rivets or screws?

    All I can say is that it looks to be US and could well be of WW2 vintage? I couldn't find this one in my reference, I have to add that my US 43 tank periscope has phillips head screws if that casts doubt.

    Could be WWII but looking at the cord, I'd be more inclined to estimate Korean War era. Did you stick a plug on it and see if it works? (Of course, who knows what voltage it runs on...knowing the Government, it could be anything!)

    Do the + screws indicates post war? I might be wrong.

    I would try unscrew the - screws at the front, maybe you can find something inside.
