You are bidding on a VERY NICE example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht 10×50 “Panzer” Binocular & Case! This is the RARER short variant, being approx. 1 ” smaller in length than the standard 10×50. This was brought back by US veteran at the end of the war.
The German Army used a wide variety of optical equipment, including a 6×30 (6 power magnification with 30mm objective lens, being the standard issued optics used by all branches of service). Though this type was the standard, specialized personnel required stronger optics (such as this 10×50), and were issues to personnel on a limited basis.
Due to their compact and lightweight design, the Roof Prism style was favoured by most Panzer Tank Crews.
Made by Hendsolt Wezlar of a large tooled alloy and aluminum construction, these 10 x 50 power binoculars are in EXCELLENT used condition! The lens bodies retain about 950% of their original, rough textured Dunkelgleb Tan finish. The aluminum end piece fittings retain about 95% of their original finish, and the eye sockets are intact. Some slight chips and wear, but nothing that takes away from the overall appearance. The focus adjustments still function perfectly on both eye pieces, and the optics are still clear with only some slight spotting and haziness. Sadly, the optical alignment is off, so these would need to be serviced for a perfect view. Comes complete with the original neck strap.
The leather case also remains in EXCELLENT condition. No dates that I can see. Spring closure still work well! One of the NICER I have seen in a while, it would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

——————- ABOUT ME —————–
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. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
