    This one no but Nippon Kogaku did make them for the Japanese military. The NOVAR 7X50 BINOCULAR shown are made by NIPPON KOGAKU-- the company now known as NIKON.
    They are marked as "made in Occupied Japan", so they are from the post war years of 1945 to 1952.
    These are Collectible you did very well Congrats.
