These binoculars were probably produced between WW1 and WW2.

Wear and tear to the binocular surface (leather armouring cover, as shown in the photos) and to the leather case appropriate with age and services.

Apart from some areas of leather cover, no other damages to binocular body and to the external or internal lenses and prisms. Some of the lenses have been cleaned where possible (i.e., objective lenses and eyepieces). The binoculars are in collimation with reasonably good images for their age.

There appears to be some light stains on some of the prism surfaces which have not been cleaned, as the prisms are covered/protected by fitted metal plates, although these do not seem to affect the use of the binoculars. The binocular image can be improved further if all the prism surfaces could be cleaned.

Please see photos for more details.
