Hello, I found a pair of binoculars in a bag inside my house. Optics are great, exterior as you can see. I have never been interested in 2nd world war history but considering I have this, it shouldn't be hidden but set on display. However my wife tells me to sell it. Is it worth anything ? Does this items worth is a function of time ?
Also what does the >>KF<< and H/6400 mean ?
How can you determine where does those binoculars come from ? Im pretty sure it was spoils of war of my great grand father. Yep, as Im writing this post im feeling more and more convinced I wont sell it.

Hello, I have just joined and wondering if you are still building the database of Busch binoculars serial numbers as I have a pair of WW2 Bakelite binoculars by Busch, if so it would be nice to have an up to date version of the list, if that is possible.

Many thanks

John

Hi all. I'm new here and I was just wondering if you could identify my binoculars. They are 6 x 30, but unfortunately most of the distinguishing markings have been scratched out by their previous owner. I think that they are Carl Zeiss Jena Dienstglas 1916 make. There is only one distinguishing feature left, a J on the bridge. I think that this is for Jena. Can anyone clarify? Also can anyone tell me if these are genuine?
Thank you!

Hello Xavier

For your Database

I found recently this binocular in the Atlantic coast of France 8 x 60 slim 1941 M, B, eagle/M nr 943 leather benutzer and leather authentic cordon.

I will be very happy to have more informations ( uboat or what kind of ship for exemple.)

Thanks

Hello Xavier,

I think with the M Mark on this Binoculars it is for ship.

The mark MSS is for the coastal unit (signal)

Hello,

Is it always ok ?

"Unless somebody one day will uncover a Carl Zeiss or Kriegsmarine document where the optical equipment issued has been registered.

We are many here who would like to see such a list"

This list is to fix binocular number with German Battleship .

Thanks.

Jean-Marc
