Two rubber eyecups are included (shown in photo) with the binoculars to replace their missing eyecups.

The binoculars lenses are clean and images are clear. Lens collimation appears to be correct. It’s just that one eyepiece appears to be slightly more powerful than the other, but this is hardly noticeable depending on the sensitivity of individual’s vision.

Wear and tear to the binoculars body and to the leather case appropriate with age and service.
