    Here is most of my binocular collection to include trophy papers for one set that I have..
    Rather than say anything about them, I'll wait for any questions.

    That's quite a collection of Dienstglas!

    I'm bit by the Dienstglas bug again as of late, and seriously miss a pair (in particular) that I let go of due to waning interest in the last year... late war smooth gray bodied Zeiss 10x50's RLN, they were unusual and probably won't see another pair.

    Anyway, as mentioned, here are the early war Waffen proofed Zeiss glasses I've had for quite some time, only pair of non maker coded waffen proofed Dienstglas I've ever had. Not brass framed as I thought, but a reddish gold anodized color coming through in the worn areas. The sight picture is amazing. If you know about lenses, these have amazing "bokeh", meaning it's not just that they are sharp, but they have this magical mix of color rendition and contrast. Tried to capture it on the grid side, can't see the grid, and it's a little too sunny this morning, but still a pretty amazing sight picture for wartime issued glasses of this vintage.

    Also a couple pics of the very late war 10x50's that I wish were still heer (pun). Very unusual leather covers on that pair.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade, if I'm reading yours correctly they are 1934440? That would be 1939 right on the mark, they made just over 70,0000 pairs that year, and ours are only 7860 pairs apart.

    I dug up this Zeiss produktion informazion a while back, can't quite remember where but here's part of it that I had cut and pasted to my computer;
