Original Item: Never before offered! Purchased in a Government bid by IMA in 1996 these are absolutely amazing and super rare. Who remembers D-Day "Pointe du Hoc", or "The Guns of Navarone"? These are what the Germans used to sight and fix positions on the closing Allied Battleships in the English Channel. Having been stored at IMA for all these years, the time has come for a great offering.

Each Rangefinder disassembles into large component parts, these parts come packed in three original WW2 German wood transit chests (included). When Fully assembled it measures over 17 Feet (5.3 Meters)! Masses of markings and dates we have just a few of these extraordinary optic sets. Actual markings may vary but all were manufactured by SOM in Paris for the German Army and of the three we have opened all are dated 1935. Again, these were made for the German Army and are original and dated WW2 or Pre-WW2 Nazi issue and will put the crowning touch on any WW2 Collection.
