Original German WWII Carl Zeiss (blc) 10x50 Dienstglas Binoculars - Named USGI Bring Back
Original Item: Only One Available. The 10 x 50 Dienstglas was one of the most used German issued binoculars of WWII. These are fully functional with clear optics and made by one of the very best makers at the time (still in business today!). They are nicely marked as follows:
The maker code is for the famous Carl Zeiss, Militärabteilung Jena, who manufactured a multitude of different types of optics for the German Military. Both diopter adjustments operate smoothly, however the eye cups are missing, probably having been removed or broken off during service.. There is wear to the textured coating, mostly on the right side, indicating that the soldier probably held it one-handed. The optics are in excellent condition and clear. Original leather neck strap is unfortunately missing, and these are offered without case.
There is the name Walter Bennett scratched into the binoculars, which we assume is the name of the USGI who captured these and brought them home. They seem to have seen significant use, possibly post war.
This is overall a nice example of the classic eye piece for German infantry officers during WWII!
