You are bidding on a NICE used example of WW1 US Army Model 1918 Battery Commander Periscope & Box! Featuring a 6x magnification, this was used in the front line trenches for artillery and observation.
Made by brass and aluminum, this Model 1918 US Army Battery Commander Periscope is in VERY NICE used condition! Featuring a 6x magnification, it does have some marks, scratches, and wear, but nothing that detracts. Optics are quite clear, but there is some spotting internally. Focus adjustment functions perfectly! Measuring approx. 28″ in overall length, these were used to help view and plot artillery attacks from behind cover, to avoid exposing the commander to danger. Model and manufacture info is stamped into the bottom, indicating:
BATTERY COMMANDERS PERISCOPE
WOLLENSAK OPT. CO.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. U.S.A.
Also comes complete with the original box! The box itself is solid, however the leather straps have deteriorated. Most of them are included, and are inside the box. Also included is an original cleaning cloth. Note that the Tripod shown in the last photo is NOT part of the auction, and is shown for reference only. A PERFECT 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.
