Original Japanese WWII Type 93 Non-Commissioned Officer's 4x10 Binoculars in Tropical Case
Original Item: Only One Available. These are a very nice pair of Japanese WWII Non-Commissioned Officer's (NCO) Type 93 binocular field glasses. Known in Japanese as the 93式双眼鏡 (93-Shiki sōgankyō), these were intended as a smaller more portable version of binocular field glasses that could be used by NCO's in the field. Lightweight and small, they were well designed for their task.
Field glasses have no internal prisms that can be knocked out of alignment so their main advantage is that they are durable, making them a good choice for file combat operations. These binoculars measure 3.5” L x 5” W and are marked with a magnification factor of 4x10°. They also have a small JES ねぢ mark, which means that it was made under "Japanese Engineering Standards". They also have serial No. 56060 on the center pivot. The binoculars are in good shape, with both lenses clear and a reticle in the right lens.
The included canvas case is in good shape, and was originally tan canvas, and painted a darker beige color. The original carry strap is present and functional with the rest of the leather components present, though aged.
A great Japanese binocular set from WWII, ready to display!
