The maker is marked on right side of eye piece:
The front side of the binoculars are marked SIGNAL CORPS. / U.S. ARMY on the left and Serial No. EE. 26758 on the right.
They are contained in their original WW1 leather issue carry case with belt loop for Officer's belt to rear. The over the shoulder carry strap has been cut only leaving the portion around the case. The interior of the Case Lid has the same Bausch & Lomb logo as on the binoculars.
Inset into the exterior case lid is a fully working compass which can be "Put at rest" by turning the dial frame anticlockwise and released again by turning the dial frame clockwise. The leather case showing some wear to lid, especially around the edges, but otherwise very good. The binoculars are just splendid.
