Carl Zeiss manufactured in London while they enjoyed their brief pre WWI international arrangement. They were issued to British military as you can see the broad arrow for MOD inscribed on the prism cap and case.. They are in good working order. They could use an internal dehaze. They are collimated and t are no chips on the prisms or lens scratches. Mechanical functions are just right. They look a little used. Who knows they could have been used at the Somme? Great piece of binocular and military history in one item. The white smear on one eyepiece barrel was cleaning compound - since removed after picture taking. The case is great to look at . Leather has character. The front strap/clasp has disappeared. Winner pays shipment. Prefer money orders but will accept pay pal.
