Title Pair 7 x 50 prismatic binoculars
Nationality German
Period c 1936
Price £300.00

This particularly fine pair was made by Busch of Rathenow (East Prussia). The case is made by Hensoldt of Wetzlar and is marked with the Weimar Army acceptance eagle. The lenses are almost as they left the factory and the resulting vision extremely sharp. There is a 1944 date on the steel snap of the case, together with a code 'crn'.

The condition of the calf leather case is superb, though there is what appears to be a synthetic lining to the case lid and the interior of the case itself. The leather strap of the case is missing.

These would probably have been used by tank or armoured assault gun crews, also possibly as artillery spotting devices, not to be confused with the ordinary 6 x 30 infantry field glasses.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
