Old BINOCULARS Conestoga Co. Model FG-66 Brass/Leather
- Source: GoAntiques
Here's a very unusual-looking pair of OLD BINOCULARS - they are LONG and LEAN! "The Conestoga Company, Bethlehem, PA, U.S.A.," is molded on the center piece of these binoculars. "Model No. FG-66-Made in USA-Patent Pending" is on the opposite side. They have a LEATHER grain covering on the hand-holds, and black painted BRASS sleeves or cylinders. We're guessing these date back to the 1920's-30's because they were among other items we acquired from that time period - they could be later , though. They are about 8" long as you see them in pix #1. Nice long neck strap and the protective lens cap is still with them (the ball chain for the lens cap has come unhooked from the cap - should be an easy fix.) They definitely do magnify objects, although we aren't sure what the power level would be rated. Could use a bit of cleaning, but these are USEFUL, and it would make a TERRIFIC DISPLAY PIECE, too!
