Zeiss 'blc' 7x50 U-boat binoculars
A stunning and completely untouched, wartime used pair of mid to late-war Zeiss 'blc' coded 7x50 armoured U-boat binoculars. Each U-boat would have carried a complement of 10 of these binoculars for use on watch duties whilst surfaced.
Presented in full original condition, this pair comes complete with all of the rubber armour and the often elusive Bakelite Benutzer cover! Factory finished in the typical KM shade of yellow/green, this particular set also retains 95%+ of the paint finish.
The optics, whilst still usable as they stand, would definitely benefit from an internal clean/service to return them to a fully serviceable state if desired. Both sides remain in full collimation.
A highly desirable and collectible piece of U-boat history, as well as being a rarely seen example which remains completely unmessed with and exactly as it was issued/found!
