    I picked these up today local to me, I don't usually buy German TR items these days but he price was too good to pass on them and I like binos, though I'll probably list them for sale fairly soon. They are 6x30's, serial number 161029, the optics are clear with no spotting and they come with a chinstrap and a leather case, though I am not sure that either are original to them. They have a O after the makers code which signifies something but I forget what it means.

    Obviously the makers are Voightlander & Sonn.

    A nice set Jerry!
    Do they have the range finder in the optics? Check the strap carefully, mine have a maker's mark and date on the strap and a considerably lower serial number.

    If they had the range finder they would be marked as yours are with H/6400 Ralph, which was on the set of Zeiss binos I used to own and had the graticule. I used to have a set with a triangle which was to do with temperature range of the grease, what the O is for I can't remember. I'll check the strap for markings later, busy at the moment.

    The "O" indicates the type of lubricant used in them. In this case, "O" stands for the Winter grease . "O"= up to -20 degrees C. I believe that the "O" was originally colored Blue for easier recognition.

    Thanks William, I had a vague recollection that it was something of that ilk. Eastern front bino's then!

    Well rather strangely, they do have a range finding scale inside the lens, I only found it when I had chance to look threw them properly today and adjusted them into proper focus. The optics are perfect on them, all the others I have owned had at least a little bit of spotting or lamination, but these appear to have none.
