Quote:The "mystery" binoculars are no longer a mystery. Somebody pulled a fast one, and apparently swiped 'em from Uncle Sam! A determined assault with chemicals (lacquer thinner, and more effectively Zip Strip, plus a pocket knife!) got thru a VERY heavy (and very ugly) coating of paint on the prism covers. The paint was caked on like a layer of tar.The glasses are Bauch & Lomb M7, circa 1942.The paint wasn't the FIRST attempt at obliterating the markings on the glasses; there was a concerted effort to SAND OFF the markings too! Not successful.
