Wow an old one indeed? I have a similar, but more modern (perhaps) one. Same quirky Zeiss makeup though.
Thanks

the APQ 130 due to arrive early next year will also have an original box with it, that should be something to see and appreciate.

Beautiful woodwork, not to mention scope. Is it from the 1950's or later?

It was from the late 50s: approximately 1957, I believe.
