I picked up a pair of these in an antique store a few years back and have always meant to post on here for info...voila! They are 8x30 EV and designated "FALKE" with a s/n 289380. Anyone have an idea of their age? Other info? Obviously birding optics, with a center focuser and a right side diopter. In great shape, just a few nicks. Got the case too, but I suppose the leather strap for it has gone the way of the DoDo bird.

A photo would be nice; it didn't make it.

Actually found pix of these online, a German ebay site. Cant read much but I don't think it provides much info anyway. Found a perfect matching strap for the case though.

No, they're porro-prism. These are probably the best pics that I found:

my case is not felt lined, though.

These look VERY similar to my brand new 2012 Swarovski Habicht 8x30 porros :)
