hello,
just thought i would post these u-boat binoculars. they were taken by a british royal marine commando when they stormed the docks in hamburg at the end of the war. the only resistance encountered were merry german sailors with plenty of beer and women!!
cheers bill.

Hello - I'm what you might call a " newbie " both to this forum and collecting WW2 binoculars and I have a question.

It has probably been asked before, I don't know, but I'll ask it again.

Why do you see the word " Dienstglas " scratched out on quite a few of the pairs of binoculars ?? Usually all the other markings are still complete. Was it something to do with the " De - Nazification " after WW2 ??

Regards,

Peter.

Hi, sorry if this is an old topic but I have a pair of Dienstglas 7x50 and I didnrt notice the coding on your list so I thought I'd post. They are marked 'Dienstglas 7x50', then '161856' then 'bmk' followed by a pyramid-like mark. They are black and in remarkable condition given their age. I believe they came into my family via one of my grandfathers one of whom fought in Afrika, or the other who was in Italy (both British Army).

Btw this is a great resource, all compliments on you endeaver to document these well made optics.

Zeiss Jena blc 8x60 (almost mint condition)

Post by itschrismck » 01 Sep 2006 21:53

As a young kid I was given these binoculars by my great uncle. He was in WWII and I guess grabbed a few souvenirs on his way back home. Does anyone have any more information about these?

Dienstglas 1-50

Post by Leaven » 16 Sep 2006 21:55

For your database:
My father-in-law fought in the Battle of the Bulge and returned with a couple of German items. One is a binocular with the following stamped into the cover for the right prism: Dienstglas
10x50
2236575
blc +

They are in a very sturdy leather case with no markings. It has metal fittings.

My understanding from some internet research is that these are made by Zeiss. Is this right. Can you tell me anything else about them?

My mother-in-law is interested in selling the binocular if there is a market for it. Would you have any idea what it's worth?

Thanks!

The Dienstglas was made by Voightländer. They also made scopes for the Imperial Army,Reichswehr and Wehrmacht.

Thanks! Is that a common maker, more or less desirable for the collector? Can you guess the approximate date of manufacture? The case it came in said Busch and was dated 1937. Regards, Chris

Hello Chris
I don´t know if your Voigtländer binocular was very common. I think that your Dienstglas is pre WWII. Later in the war they had the ddx code. Maybe your bino saw service at the german artillery H (Heer - german army) 6400 Strich = 360°. The artillery is still using that system.

H/6400

All Dienstglas have the grid (H/6400) inside so I dont agree that this was only for artillery.
Maybe someone have an other opinion.
