    Default need help with voightlander braunschweig binoculars

    These binoculars i picked up at a yard sale, im interested in learning more about them, on the left shoulder it says: voightlander underneath it says braunschweig under that is a serial number capital N and underlined o, and the numbers 62810. on the right shoulder is marked the number 6x24 and above that is an etching of a lion on a pedestal, there are no other markings that i can see on it other than the right ocular has a + and - for collimation i was wondering if anyone here might be able to tell me more.

    If they are for military use they should be marked with a waffenamt number, in this case WA389 for Voightlander. the marking should be around the bell of each of the ocular lenses.

    They appear to be made for the civilian market, nice though, I've got a wartime Voightlander camera my dad bought back from His National Service in Germany around '53-'54 and the optics are superb, it takes great photo's.

    yeah the only reason i bought these was because the binos were so clear i knew they were old and i was surprised, they are as clear as my modern tasco 10x42's i was told these were pre-1920's so that's pretty impressive
