These binoculars, which are in mint condition, repose in their original bakelite case. The case shows no cracks. The leather straps are perfect. The paint on the binoculars, as one can see in the photos, is exceptional. Except for the small yellow tab which is present but not connected to the pull clip, the piece would have to rate 95%. It is dated 1942. Beautiful example of tropical binoculars.
