Any Dienstglas collectors here, strange eyecups?

    Default Any Dienstglas collectors here, strange eyecups?

    Picked up these pretty much straight from the Vet Dienstglas, DDX coded for Voigtlander. The eyecups are unusual, anyone seen similar eyecups before? They are flat, maybe for eyeglass wearers? I have never actually seen these on a pair of Diensglas before.

    Interesting..I wonder if they came standard from the factory this way or was there an option to get these extra fittings to screw on when needed..hmm. Great question!
