This is a good solid pair made by a maker which is a bit hard to find. The tan finish is original but shows age and use. The width adjustment is loose and with resistance. The eye cups move but do not appear to do anything. The internal optics are in line and without chips or damage. There is a very small amount of fuzz like growth around the reticule. The bottom rail is there, and sound. Still, it is good solid set.
This is a really nice example. The green finish is original and 90%+ It has no problems or issues. The original canvas strap is still there @ the bottom, and is very sound. Overall it has a little rust, a few dings, lots of dust and fuzz, but overall very good and solid. You will not be disappointed.
This is a good original example showing light age and use. it will look great on your FLAK scope.
We had a no pay, so here it is again. This is a functional piece, which was period repainted. It looks to be all there and a perfect piece to complete your binocular set.
This is a functional piece, which was period repainted. The plastic knobs are missing as is half of the battery case hook. Still, it looks good and is the "missing link" in the 10X80 FLAK binocular set.
This is a good solid set without issues. They have a factory blued finish which shows age, but is still very good.
This is the standard WWII German 70mm range finder as used by MG and mortar crews. It is in excellent condition and in working order. It was repainted after the war, but is otherwise all original. This is a great addition to your WWII field gear collection or reenacting display. It looks good and is very cool.
These are actual U-boat binos made for use only ot the U-boats. The external finish shows age and use, but is still good, as are the rubber bumpers. Internally, they are slightly foggy, but still 90% clear. This is the cheapest pair on the web, and your chance to own a real piece of U-boat history.
This is a beautiful set with 99% original black finish. The optics are also great. The leather eye cover is Navy eagle "M" marked. The binos are only Dienstglas marked. The case is also very good and cane with the glasses. This is a great pair; you will not be disappointed.
This is a very attractive set. The binos are excellent and very good internally, being functional, with no damage, and only very very light fogging. The case is the original one to the set and is excellent. It is maker marked & dated on the front with a nice "eagle M" Navy property stamp on the top. The front closure stud is missing, but I think not hard to fix. I feel guilty selling this set!
This is a super rare case for the 6X30 Bakelite binos and with double Navy marks. It has the big KM eagle on the top and another Navy property mark on the front along with a 44 date and WaA proof. One belt loop is broken, but all there, otherwise it is excellent. It's the 1st one of these I have had with the KM markings. I don't expect to find another one any time soon!
These are from an old collection. They are a good solid original pair of the large 7X50 binos period spray painted tan over the leather type covering. Some of the paint is worn off, but these tan painted binos just do not come up for sale. Internally, I see no damage, but some growth around the circumference on one side. Everything appears to be functional, just a little stiff. The strap is the original one, and is good and sound.
This is a good looking pair of binos, but damaged. They are broken where the 2 halves come together @ the hinge. Someone did a nice job gluing them, so they stay together, but do not move. The eyepieces focus, and internally they have a little growth, but no damage. These are the perfect attractive cheapo display pair for your collection.
This is a very solid example of the standard WWII German 6x30 binos. The paint is very good, and the optics are clear, with just a tiny bit of fuzz. I would call them 95% internally. There are no cracks or damage. The exterior shows some light honest use, but no issues. Overall, this is a very nice pair for your collection or the beach.
This is a solid well marked set. The optics are clear and undamaged, but slightly out of alignment. The exterior coverings are all there, but the edges are coming away fro the body slightly. I think some crazy glue would fix them fine. Still, they display very well.
These are made in typical WWII era style, with nice clear optics but totally unmarked and without a grid. They are nice and functional, but the eye cups are a bit loose, and do show age. These are perfect for your Panzer display.

This is a really good set with excellent optics which have no problems only a very tiny bit of fog. The alignment is good and they have no chips or cracks. They have never been fixed or cleaned.
This is the hard to find 10 power and not the 7 power large German WWII binocular. The rough finish is about 90%. The optics are clear, and everything is functional. They are cold weather rated, as the blue "+" indicates. Overall they are a very nice example of the large 10 power bino. These also come recommended for the beach! Yes, the original strap is included.
Ok ok, thy look a bit ugly on the outside but are really nice on the inside. They are good for your display, or even better they would be great for some external restoration, and use @ the beach, or just watching those strange neighbors who are constantly communicating with the aliens from the planet Zorton and again trying to take over the world. You have to keep your eyes open for just that kind of thing. Overall, they are mechanically functional, and very solid.
The scope is an early original German made piece. It looks to be functional and clear. The blued finish is original with a bit of cold blue touch up @ one end. The bands are very solid. One is original with the other being an old replica. The mount fits very well on the rifle, and is WaA 214 marked. It has a very realistic appearance. This is a good looking set for display, shooting or reenacting.
These were made by the Czechs after the war using WWII German machinery. After the war, the demand for German Army surplus arms and equipment was so great that the Czechs assembled German G43 or ZF4 scopes with left over parts in the factory. When they ran out of parts, they started the machinery back up. The only changes were made internally with a beefed-up mechanism so the scopes were more durable. Externally they are identical to the war time ones. This piece is 99% blue, and the optics have been professionally cleaned, so they are 100%, and completely functional. This one also has the elevation cap, which is always missing. This is the best one of these I have had; you will love it.

If you would like a great functional G 43 scope, this is it. It has one tiny chip in the lens, but it does not detract form the function at all.
This thing looks just like a real one, only new. Age it up and fool your friends. It is a perfect filler for your collection or just what you need for shooting or re-enacting.
This is the type commonly seen on the larger 10X50 or the 7X50, but NOT the Hensold 7X56. It is complete with the leather tabs, and overall very good with only one chip o the inside which does not show.

This is what holds down the binos, so they don't flop while you run. It is a leter war example of thinner leather, which has curled up a bit, but is still very solid. These are always missing. Much like other things in life; get it while you can.
This is a universal WWII German bino neck strap. It is full length and solid & sound. The buttons are black, which is for the black finished ones.
This is for the 5X56 style of Hensold non-prismatic binoculars. They came in a tall and short version; this is for the short version. It stands 9 inch or 23 cm tall. It is not marked, but is overall very solid, just a bit dusty from some long time storage. The front tab is functional. Overall it is solid and has no problems.

This is an excellent example without problems or issues. it shows some only light honest age and use, and look great. There is an old piece of masking tape on the front. It will come of easily, and yes; I will remove it for you if you want me to.
This is a good looking case with solid leather belt loops on the back. There is a crack on the front, which does not show too much. It will display well in your collection zone.
This is an attractive early case. The leather is very solid and it is nicely maker & WaA marked. The rivets in the top are missing. The original strap is all there, but a little weak in the center. It displays very well and will look great with your other 3rd Reich field stuff.
These early cases are hard to find. The leather is very sound with good solid stitching. The front pull tab shows its age, as this is the typical weak spot on these early cases. Overall it is a good solid example.
We seem to see more binos than cases. It is made of imitation leather and marked 42. It shows some use and age, but is sound and original.
