Super rare 1928 Carl Zeiss Jena 8x40 WA monocular (8.5° FOV) plus case
For your consideration is a vintage Carl Zeiss Jena wide angle 8x40, approximately 8.5° FOV. The monoculars are in very good condition considering their age, with only slight to-be-expected haze present. The focuser works great, the eyecup is not chipped or cracked, and there are no exterior glass issues, fungus, or prism chips. The original leather case, though it provides protection, has seen better days. The exterior shows considerable alligatoring of the leather and the hinge flap has failed. Believed to be based off the (8.75° FOV) Zeiss Jena Delactis 8x40 manufactured only between 1921 and 1936, this hard-to-find monocular is ready to be appreciated, enjoyed, and would make a fine addition to any monocular or binoculars collection. Monocular comes with neck strap and leather case as shown. The item "Super rare 1928 Carl Zeiss Jena 8x40 WA monocular (8.5° FOV) plus case" is in sale since Sunday, April 4, 2021.
