Ersatz 7x50 / 10x50 binocular case 'bmk 1943'
A very nice storage case for the 7x50/10x50 binoculars which is clearly marked 'bmk 1943 WaAC52', denoting production by Srb & Stys Fabrik Praziser Messinstrumente, Prag. This factory was a very well established supplier of optics to both Kriegsmarine and Heer forces, and was also one of the few manufacturers to produce their own cases for such instruments as well.
The overall condition of this particular example remains very good, and despite some slight damage to one of the side-mounted loops (pictured), the front closure tab, rear leather hinge and all internal fittings remain completely intact and functional.
Indeed, this piece would also appear to be a rather unique variation too, given its construction from some type of Ersatz artificial leather, which has a very coarse texture. A simply excellent accessory for any 7x50 or 10x50 binoculars!
