    An early war set of leitz , company logo on the left prism top and the kriegsmarine eagle on the right side .

    The tops are copper and the eagle is intact but a real so and so to try and photograph.
    Coverings are good almost 100% , eye cups bakalite coated in rubber , the left eye cup ( bakalite liner) is completely gone but it still has shape.
    A bit dirty and dusty inside but no separation, lens are not coated.

    They have that "used" look about them , I wanted a set which had intact coverings and the Kgm eagle intact, the eye cups - have not seen a combination of rubber and bakalite before , the eye cups could be replaced but I am loath to do so unless I know for sure that they are not period .
    Might leave this set as they are .
    At some stage a decent later war set .....

    I'd leave them alone James, there is something definitely war time about these, if only they could talk, what stories they could tell ..........

    That is my own gut feeling, having owned leitz sets in the past I tended not to use them very much . Although this set is dusty inside it has not gassed out and it is free of any fungal growth.
    I would also be a little worried about potential damage to the coverings in opening them.
