Late-war Bakelite 6x30 Dienstglas 'cxn'

Late-war Bakelite 6x30 Dienstglas 'cxn'

£0.00Price

A very scarce original late-war example of the 6x30 Dienstglas, produced from speckled red/brown coloured Bakelite.

 

This is a completely untouched set, and comes complete as it was issued with the correct model of leather neck strap & rubber ocular cover. These fittings were unique to Bakelite Dienstglas and are very seldom seen on surviving examples today! 

 

As is also quite often not the case, the 'Dienstglas' military designation remains intact to the right hand prism plate, alongside the 'cxn' maker code on the opposite side - denoting manufacture by Emil Busch A.G, Rathenow

 

The optics, whilst still somewhat functional, would benefit from an internal clean to remove some dust/debris should useability be desired.  They retain the H/6400 Strichplatte rangefinder reticule within the right-hand side. 

 

Overall, a great example of a highly desirable late-war optic!
