Description


You are bidding on a VERY NICE example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Navy 15 x 4 Degree (15×80) Battleship Monocualr!  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, this monocular is in AMAZING used condition!  Manufactured later in the war, they retain 95% of the original Navy grey paint!  The optics are still PERFECT, and the focus adjustment functions perfectly!  No major spotting or dust particles!   What is interesting is that this was converted from a standard 15×80 binocular at the factory level…and NOT something that was done post-war.  This is proven by the fact that all the original WW2 paint still remains on the cut areas.  VERY interesting!  Some paint chips and marks as you can see in the photos…as well as some scratches.  The 80mm front objective lens is slightly recessed.  All manufacture info would have been on the right side ocular plate…but as this monocular was made from a left side, there are no markings present.  One fo teh few types of I have, it would make a SUPERB 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.
