    Default 6x30 Dienstglas ddx triangle

    In an extremely lucky find, I came across a $5 pair of Dienstglas in an antique shop in Providence marked simply as 'army binoculars'. Unfortunately they're missing all the leather, the case and the left eyepiece is broken, but for the price I can't complain.

    I'd like to have the optics cleaned up as they're a bit dirty, so your thoughts on that would be appreciated.

    Hello, for 5 dollars for a pair of Voigtlanders is not bad at all. If you keep your eyes out on places like eBay, once in a blue moon you might be able to find a replacement eye cup, but it will likely take awhile. As for cleaning....I can tell you it will not be a cheap process, so expect a pretty good bite out of the wallet to have them cleaned and collimated. And it usually takes a good while to get them back, but once done, they should be good for the rest of your life time. The only leather this pair had on them was the neck strap and the rain shield for the eye pieces, but many of these are usually found without.
