Original WWII Imperial Japanese Large 10 X 70mm 7.1° Binoculars by NIKKO
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a nice set of WWII issue large Japanese army officer binoculars, offered in very good condition. The binoculars are fully functional, with clear optics and the focus adjustment on both sides working, though the right side is stiff and could use lubrication. These originally had rubber eye cups , however they have fallen off, with just remnants left around the eyepieces.
The binoculars bear the NIKKO marking for manufacture by Nippon Kōgaku Kōgyō Kabushikigaisha (日本光学工業株式会社 "Japan Optical Industries Corporation"), today known as Nikon, a maker of cameras. They were a major producer of binoculars during WWII. The Binoculars also bear serial number No. 12207 under the maker marking. The right side gives the specifications of 10 X 70mm / 7.1°., meaning that the objective lenses are 70mm in diameter, with a 7.1 degree field of view, and 10 x magnification.
Overall condition is very good, with only light wear to the finish, and fully intact covering on the barrels. The neck strap is unfortunately missing, as well as the previously mentioned eye cups.
Approximate dimensions are 8" x 9 1/2" x 3 1/2". Overall a great addition to any WWII Pacific Collection.
