Hello

I believe you have 10x80 binoculars with the eyepieces at a 20 degree angle to the main axis. If so, they are from a Kriegsmarine surface craft not a U-Boat. They had or still have, a gunsite fixed on top right side for quick target acquisition and a manufacturers nameplate with blc and an eagle with swastika on the right side prism housing. They are 13.5 inches long and the tubes extend that to 19 inches. These can be seen on page 357 of Fernglaser und Fernrohre in Heer, Luftwaffe Und Marine by Hans Seeger. Very nice piece. You will have not trouble selling them. I have a pair of these and treasure them.

Regards
Dick
