Note: The pattern 332A type is quite a rare model as they were not produced in great numbers. The cosmetic condition of this telescope is as expected for its age. The scope is in good working condition with no dents on the metal tube or on leather cladding. No chips or damage to the lenses, and no dust or mould on the internal lenses. All lenses have been cleaned where possible. This telescope gives good image.
For customer information, like most vintage telescopes of this type, the magnification value is not marked on the telescope body. We have tried to compare this telescope with a spotting scope which has a zoom magnification. It looks that the images as viewed through both telescopes become similar as the magnification level of the spotting scope is adjusted to somewhere between 15x and 20x (or around 18x). Nevertheless, this information is for your reference purpose only.
