You are bidding on a VERY NICE set of WW2 German Wehrmacht 7×56 “Panzer” Binoculars! These were heavily used by armored troops, due to their compact size.
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 favored by most Panzer Tank Crews.
Made by Hendsolt Wezlar of a large tooled alloy and aluminum construction, these 7 x 56 power binoculars are a VERY NICE example! The lens bodies retain about 80% of their original, rough textured, Black finish. The aluminum end piece fittings retain about 98% of their original finish, and the eye sockets are intact. Some slight chips, scratches, and wear throughout, but nothing that takes away from the overall appearance. The focus adjustments are functional, however the left side is loose, and needs to have upward/downward tension on them in order to focus (probably need some tightening/adjustment). The optics are still very clear with almost NO spotting. Optics are in PERFECT alignment! The body is well marked with the impressed designation, “HENSOLDT-WETZLAR 1364 NACHT-DIALYT 7×56″. The LOW serial number indicated that these were manufactured quite early (pre-war), though they do have a wartime (1944) case. Neck strap is original to the binoculars.
The leather case also remains in EXCELLENT condition. Dated 1944, the button closure is still present and is functional. The strap is original, but does have a tear (see photos). Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items.
