    Angry wierd paint sceme on these binoculars

    I just bought this set for less then a hundred bucks. I hope I didn't get ripped off but it has that salty look to it. well used. I don't like mint perfect items...ANYWAYS it has traces of the ordanance tan paint but why would it be painted black then painted over? I thought they used the tan color after black wasn't a option anymore....any thoughts? thanks!Click image for larger version.

    If black paint has been put over the original tan coat, it could be a post-war solution applied then.
    Sometimes original wartime equipment was used for e.g. civil purposes after 1945 and in this case it could be acquired by the hunter and black coat would seem to be more acceptable than “ordinary yellow” one. My grandfather, as the NCO of the Polish Army brought home his service binoculars after September 1939 campaign. He used them for hunting for next 30 years and (lucky for me) there was no need to adopt them because they were in stylish, black paint coat.
