The German Army and Navy used a wide variety of optical equipment, including a 6x30 (6 power magnification with 30mm objective lens), 7x50, 8x30, 10x50 and others, being the standard issued optics used by all branches of service. Though this type was the standard, specialized personnel required stinger optics, and were issues to personnel on a limited basis. This specific binocular was used by U-Boat crews, ships, and coastal artillery.
Made by Leitz of a large tooled alloy and aluminum construction, these 7 x 50 power binoculars are in EXCELLENT used condition! The lens bodies retain all their original faux leather covering, and the focus adjustment still functions perfectly on both eye pieces! The optics are still VERY clear, with NO spotting, and are in PERFECT alignment! Left side is marked 7 x 50, the "beh" manufacture code for Leitz-Wetzlar. Comes with the original rain shield, however the retaining spring is broken.
Strap is original to this set, however one end is broken, and will need to be re-attached. A PERFECT addition to any collection or display!! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items.Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only. The item "WW2 German Kriegsmarine 7x50 Leitz U-BOAT BINOCULARS #2 NICE" is in sale since Sunday, February 2, 2020.
