10x80 Flakfernrohr cradle + turntable mount 'cxn'
A superb, matching cradle & turntable mount for the 10x80 Flakfernrohr binoculars. Despite certainly seeing some field use, this example still retains nearly all of the original field grey paint finish!
Both parts are maker coded 'cxn' to signify manufacture by Emil Busch, Rathenow.
All functions, aside from the elevation marker dial (note this is currently seized and with a broken adjuster knob - which is included as shown), still work exactly as they should!
The main elevation dial on the cradle still raises/lowers the cradle very smoothly. Likewise for the turnable, also with a smooth functioning action, working adjusters and intact spirit level!
It is getting extremely hard to find these parts in any condition now, yet alone as a matching maker pair in original wartime paint!
