Research on these old binoculars was inconclusive in trying to give them a date. Except for the manufacturer, there are no identifying marks. Best match was a 1940's vintage. The folding mechanism has been loosened to at least make them once more adjustable. However, the focus knob is out of alignment and not working at all. Lens appear unblemished, but do need a cleaning inside. Japanned black with leather covering and a few dings and scratches. A little knowledgeable attention should bring them back to working order.
The case has done its job protecting the binoculars, but is worn on the outside. Catch is missing, but it is still firm. Strap on one side is hanging by a thread. They were among my grandmother’s estate and the significance of the name and number on the case lid are unknown. Perhaps left by one of the boarders she had during the 1940's and 1950's. Opened fully, they are 5-1/2 inches wide. Standing upright 3-1/2 inches.
