An excellent set of Carl Zeiss Jena Binoctem 7x50mm binoculars with Zeiss leather case. No scratches or marks anywhere on either the body parts or the lenses. Pebbled black leather optical tube covering is in perfect condition. Glass is scratch free and just needs a light cleaning.All labels and index markings and numbering are crisp and easily read. Zeiss leather case with embossed logo and felt lined at bottom is in very good condition with a few minor scuffs. And some light wear at case rim and leather hinge.
Leather case may not be same year as binoculars. It is possible that it is a newer replacement case. The leather strap for bino's is in excellent condition.
These binoculars have a slight bit of oxidation on the hinge tube and the knurled rings on both eye pieces. The right diopter adjustment and the central focusing wheel could both use a little lube. They turn just fine but are. Same goes for the hinges.
These bino's weigh 894. (1lb 15.5oz) which should date them to 1938. A search for serial number information Ser. 2332269 also dates them to 1938.These are highly collectable and the excellent condition that the binoculars and the leather case are in make these exceptional. Please note: There were no lens caps or instructions provided by Zeiss Jena back in those early days. This set of bino's only came with the case and the two straps. One strap for the case and the other for the bino's. Please track the package and insure that someone will be there to.
