All these years of me lurking around here I've never worked out how ya generate a voter poll!!!
Welcome to the Forum. You have a very nice set of Jaapanese optics. Having the storage case is icing on the cake. Thanks for posting these.

I agree, a very nice set. I can see that more might be needed to evaluate the full worth of the set: optics not cloudy, no damage, etc., but the way it looks now and the prices these fetch on ebay at this time, I am confident that you could go north of $1000 fairly easily.
Thank you for that you have helped enormously, I have put these binoculars up for sale on ebay hoping to find a home for them with someone who will appreciate them more than me. Type 91 Director 8 CM Naval Binoculars Imperial Japanese Cruiser Destroyer | eBay
FYI ... I see they sold for 2850 Australian dollars which at this time is roughly equivalent to 2555 USD.
