    Default German binoculars with neat twist

    Hey guys,

    I found this set for sale at a local pawn shop. The shop is one of those kinds that are run by old ladies that sell furniture and whatnot so it surprised me to find them. She is asking $80 for them. Seeing as how I don't know much about German optics, I would really appreciate any info you all can give me on these binoculars. The pics aren't the greatest, since I only had my cell phone handy to take pics of it with.

    If you guys like them, and if you think it's a good price, then I might just be tempted enough to go back and buy them.

    Regards,

    If they have good clear vision that is a very good price.

    Thats a very good price for the binos and the case, with the added bonus of the luft and tricolour decals.

    That is a great price if the optics are good, as Zwerge says.............!

    I think I'll take them then. : )

    I just hope they're still there when I go back. Thanks for all of your help guys.

    Just one more question. Judging from these pictures, can any of you put an approximate date on the set? I would at least like to know if they are early, mid, or late war. My guess would be early.

    Hello,
    is this set was offered to me for $80, i would buy it within a second, even if optics are not clear. These are very nice bmk (Srb & Stys, Prague) binos which would diplay very well on a mannequin, and the bakelite carrier has been probably enhanced by the vet who took it at the end of the war (even if of course there is no way to be sure that it's was period done).
    I like this set...

    Is the carrying strap of the carrier complete ?
    A genuine carrying strap only is rare and expensive...
    Thanks

    I think the use of letter codes is from after November 1940, so mid war might be more accurate, though it might be possible to work out from the serial number when they were made, but certainly some time after November 1940. The serial number looks to be relatively high, so they might be mid to late war.
