Hi Dean,not sure what exactly it is but I can tell you the H6/400 scale is used on ww2 german dienstglas binoculars,as you say could be some sort of handheld range estimator
Thank you!! I hope someone has more info as it is an interesting item.
It's a Deckungswinkelmesser....It's an optical measuring tool to determine the correct Coverage and Field of Fire...
Thank you Glenn again!!!!!
NO THANK YOU AGAIN, I just looked up that "name" and I cannot believe how rare these are!!!
I will have to contact my picker and give him a bit more for this one!!! Selling for 275 Euros..and SOLD
Gotta keep him happy as he does find me some very good items, I do prefer the Non- German WW2 items..but we buy what we can and then trade or sell to enlarge our own collections... it's just seems it is getting harder to find things I want for my collection
Thank You Again!!!!
Nice Deckungswinkelmesser... Indeed they are pretty rare, and yours is a nice wartime example ( they also exist in post war variations)
It is part of a german mapcase, that has a special space reserved for this tool.....
I must say 275 is pretty high in my opinion.... 100-150 is a more common price
Just my .02 cents 😉
I agree with Tom...I've seen them on German Ebay.de for 80-100 Euros...
