    It's a periscope of the type used in tanks and armored cars. Is what appears to be the remains of a label all that suggests it is German? Are there any numbers or other marks on it? Dwight

    It's a "HI-VU SPORTSMAN'S PERISCOPE" produced by the Unks Mfg. Corp. of Lancaster, Ohio. They were used on allied armour during the war. So most definitely NOT German....
