Original WWII Imperial Japanese 7x7.1° Binoculars by ToKo with Tropical Case and Eyepiece Filters
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a nice set of WWII issue Japanese army officer binoculars in original tropical carry case, offered in very good condition. The binoculars are fully functional, with each side being having an independent focus control. Optics are mostly clear, and able to focus accurately. The right side has a very nice range reticle inside. The interior of the lid has two compartments, each of which contains a set of two filters for the eyepieces. One set is lightly tinted blue, while the other is a darker tint.
The binoculars bear the TO KO marking for Tokyo Kogaku Kikai or Tokyo Optical, as well as their logo on the left side. They were a major producer of binoculars during WWII. The Binoculars also bear serial number No24126 under the maker marking. The right side gives the specifications of 7x7.1°.
Overall condition is good, though some of the plastic covering of the binoculars has cracked off due to deterioration of the plastic. The canvas neck strap is present, but one of the leather connecting pieces is missing, so it cannot be used without a replacement.
The case is of the painted canvas type, common for tropical use, and is in good condition for the age of the piece. It has overall wear to the paint, which looks to originally have been black or dark blue. The hinge is fabric, and somewhat deteriorated but solid. The lid compartment closure straps work well, and the canvas shoulder strap shows wear, but no major tears or damage. The closure strap for the lid is unfortunately missing.
Approximate dimensions are 8" x 9" x 4". Overall a great addition to any WWII Pacific Collection.
