Thanks Agatha, I just added a before picture, the second one shows it after a day of love and care, now protected by clear lacquer.

I think you should call it "George" because it sure is curious...

I'd post this under the Classic Scopes forum to see if anyone recognizes it. It appears as though it was made for a specific scope since the rings do not open.

Beautiful job of restoration!
