    Default Srb & Stys 6 x 30 Dienstglas & Bakelite Case

    Hello chaps,

    I picked up these binos today along with a periscope from a Sherman tank. I don't know much about either but I have done a bit of research which is hopefully correct (brilliant resources here for researching optics and bakelite items!). I have not found many with bakelite cases online, is that less common than leather?

    The binoculars themselves are by Srb & Stys in Prague, Czechoslovakia, 6 x 30 and in great condition. Optics are clear as crystal. The strap is marked fzg and dated 42. I think this is for Feinmechanik GmbH, Kassel, Germany from research in the pinned thread in the field gear forum. Finally the bakelite case is in really great condition with no cracks or chips anywhere, but the leather tabs at the rear are completely gone. Again from research from the pinned threads in the forum I think this was made by H.Römmler AG, Spremberg. It is cmposed of type T carbolic resin (Bakelite), with a textile based filler.

    If anyone could give me a fair idea of a value for this piece I would appreciate it (feel free to pm rather than post in the thread), as I have no experience in this field at all.

    Thanks for looking!
