You are bidding on a VERY NICE set of WW2 Imperial Japanese Navy 15 x 4 Degree (15×80) Battleship Binoculars!This “Big Eye” style was specifically used on late-war battleships, destroyers, cruisers and other surface vessels!These were brought back by a US veteran, however I do not have any further history.
Made of a solid brass, aluminum, and steel by Toko, this set of binoculars is in VERY GOOD used condition!Manufactured earlier in the war, they retain traces of their original paint! The optics are still in PERFECT alignment…however there is a chip in one of the prisms. Chip is not very noticeable when looking through, as it is at the very top. Focus adjustments function perfectly! No major spotting or dust particles!The center features a prominent data plate indicating all manufacture information, as well as a Navy Anchor stamp. Some paint chips and marks as you can see in the photos…as well as some scratches.The 80mm front objectives are slightly recessed. The oculars should normally rotate inward and outward slightly, so the user can adjust for eye spacing…however they are very stiff. The winning bidder would need to lubricate these to be able to rotate. Due to the large weight and size, I have had to estimate the shipping costs.I will provide a more accurate cost to the winning bidder (dependent on shipping location). It would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–
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. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- 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.
