Quote:Interesting find. I would date them to the late 60's early 70's. I thik I would have pair $10 for the case alone!
Quote:This small binoculars Italian was supplied by Italian Artillery Mountains. It was a small pair of binoculars, only 3.5 x38 and Galilean. It cost 55 lire in 1910. I found the catalog of 1910 which lists all binoculars Filotecnica, both civilian and military with prices in LIRE period.
Quote:The filter says USN, so it's Navy. The case has that wonderful smell of rubber , and yes it's made by Hood. It looks like the prism plates have been worked, but then that "Coated Optics" label that is on top of it all. It is pretty clear that there has been some sort of maintenance done on it previously because all the notches on the objective lens retaining rings have markings that indicate use. But I find no other clues as to manufacture. There was a haze on the inside of the objective lenses that I have been able to clean off, so the images are pretty nice. The alignment didn't seem that bad at first, but I now see a slight image rotation on one side. I think that is why I'm starting to get a headache.
