Sorry I was tryHere is a great collectible - a World War II pair of binoculars made by Carl Zeiss. These are Kriegsmarine issued and marked accordingly. I believe they are intended for U-boat service but I am sure someone more knowledgeable than me can clarify. These are designed to be fixed mounted and not hand-held (at least for very long). The magnification is U.D.F. 7x50 with serial number 91. They are marked Carl Zeiss Jena. Optics are good and still in focus but could use a little cleaning. These are quite heavy and about 15 pounds of brass.They also hav atriangled pin to choose "dunkel or hell"
