And another from me. A pair of BMK and although objectives are scratched image is good.
KF I think means they use the low viscosity grease in the focus screws. Image

H/6400 is the scale of the ranging grid (the lines you mention on the binoculars...)

Thanks Xavier for this answer.

According to the serial number, is it possible to know approximatively the issue date ?

Some friends told me it was WWII glasses.

7x50 Ernst Leitz Wetzlar

Post by Schwede » 05 Mar 2010 21:06

Not sure, about these Kriegsmarine binoculars, a pair of 7x50 Ernst Leitz Wetzlar. Lots of binos where changed post-war by adding an eagle & swastika, to make them more appealing to the unwary buyer. Pls let me know if those are the real thing?
