    Default Broad arrow marked matching case and binos

    Picked up today, matching maker marked case and binos, Paris made, with broad arrow stamps and sold out of service marks on both. They still work fine, but the case has been repaired fairly recently by the look of it with a new closure strap.

    They have some letters and a number scratched into them, though not clearly readable as a name.

    Thanks Taka. I had the W at start and finish but the trying to make the others look like letters is where I was going wrong, obviously numbers as you posted.

    I think you are correct. Easier to read when I stop trying to read it as letters.

    Thanks.
