Carl Zeiss Jena 10 x 50 Binoculars complete with original leather carry case. Serial Number 4875123, this gives a manufacturing date of 1979. This makes these binoculars 42 years old and they are in remarkable condition. These binoculars have the `Erste Qualitaet` (First Rate Quality) mark. This is signified by the Q letter, struck through with a number 1.
In absolutely beautiful condition, these have seen very little use. I have examined them closely and can find no wear marks or damage to the body.The optics are clear - images are bright and sharp. The leather carry case is also in fine condition with just a few marks on the lid (see images).
The carry strap is in near perfect condition with no cracking of the leather. The strap to the binoculars themselves has never even been fitted - its coiled up just as it left the factory.
Complete with original Instruction Manual and the Carl Zeiss `Lifetime Guarantee` slip. I have come to the conclusion that they are just too good a condition to be used. They may be of interest to a collector of precision optical instruments, or to someone who simply appreciates top quality binoculars.
