    Default Carl Zeiss Jena Dienstglas H/6400 (M)

    I have just got these pair of binoculares, I think they might be from the Marine according to the small m. Do anyone know about Carl Zeiss Jena Dienstglas H/6400 (M) for Marine. Used by German Navy and perhaps as well as Army. Has range finder/Reticle. Crystal clear and collimated. No black specs, scratches, or haze at the glasses.
    The H/6400 means there should be a range finding reticle in one of the lens. I think the 6400 represents Mils
    IT seems it is made of brass, the left adjustment do not work.
    At right side you see 6x30, serial nr: 1618365 m (for Marine) and H/6400
    At left side one see the manufacturer Carl Zeiss Jena

    These are quite rough, and missing their eye
    cups. KM binos should have an eagle over
    a capitol letter 'M'.........

    Hi Steve
    Thank you for your info, so the missing K should indicate Kriegs Marine ?
    Yes the cups are missing, but I got the cheap for 20 Euro, I think the Price was OK regarding the the condition of the binoculares. :-)
    Regards

    Great price - plus the cups could always be replaced.
    Any KM binos I have seen always had an 'Eagle
    over M' marking. Where did you you find
    this info on them, John.........?
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Hi Steve
    I found a similar pair on Ebay, all the info might not be correct. Perhaps there has been an Eagle over the Marking M, but I cannot see it on my Photo.

    Yes, I too looked for more information on the internet,
    but all I could find were several from Ebay as well.
    There were a few pics of a set on another forum,
    and these had a very distinct 'Eagle M' on
    the left side.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Hi John,
    these are military binos not naval,you are right the H/6400 does refer to the ranging graticule in the right hand lens,but the m is for metric thread not marine,i can tell you though they were of a batch of 7000 made in December 1934,so definitely saw service with the Wehrmacht in ww2,hope this helps

    You can also tell they are early from the brass used all later binoculars were alu and the later binoculars have the 3 letter code
