Original WWII Imperial Japanese 6 x 9.3° Binoculars by Enomoto Kogaku with Original Leather Case

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. An original pair of WWII Japanese Military Binoculars in excellent overall condition . Maker marked "EK" in a symbol that looks like a six-pointed star (like and elongated Star of David). “EK” stands for Enomoto Kogaku, which ceased to exist before the end of WWII, as they were bought out by Fujifilm to become Fuji Photo Optical Company in 1944.

Power is marked as: 6 x 9.3°. They also have a small J.E.S. ねぢ mark, which means that it was made under "Japanese Engineering Standards". Numbered; No. 13554. Rangerinders are also visible when looking through the lenses at an angle

Optics have slight dirt specks, but overall very clear (we have made no attempt to clean). Original black painted finish is roughly 50% intact. Textured barrel covers are in fine shape. Original Bakelite Eyecups and bezels are perfect. Hinge is tight and swivels as it should. Nothing missing, replaced, repaired, broken or non-original. This is a rare find and a great piece of history

Original leather case is in good condition, with shoulder sling loops intact. The closure tab is unique in that it is similar to that of a Japanese Nambu Holster.
