D.F. 10x80 Flakfernrohr binoculars 'cro'+ Flakvisier AA sight
A stunning example of the D.F. 10x80 Flak binoculars complete with the original rubber headrest pad, detachable front sunshades and Flakvisier AA attachment. This is one of a trio of Flakfernrohr just listed which were all US veteran bring-backs!
Finished in the original ordnance tan paint, this particular pair are clearly maker coded 'cro', indicating manufacture by R. Fuess, Optische Industrie, Berlin. This maker is by far and away the rarest of all those which produced the 10x80 Flakfernrohr - with this being the only example from this maker which we have ever had the opportunity to obtain!
The optics are excellent and produce a lovely clear image with a superb field of view as is typical of the 10x80s. The ocular width adjustment remains fully functional. However, note that the only item which will require some attention is the filter adjustment dial, which is missing the cross bolt screw to attach to/operate the rotating mechanism on which it sits.
Nevertheless, this is an incredibly rare set which is surely missing from many of even the most focussed of optics collections today!
