Here's a few pics.
They seem well maintained and in good collimation- I'm going birding in the morning to test that hypothesis. However, I wish the night clouds would blow away-

Nice find.

Many years ago I bought a 7x50 Manon Monocular and case which came with a couple of birding books from a secondhand store. Unlike the colored engravings on your Binocular, the Monocular's are filled in with white paint, which has faded over time; I don't recall the shrine markings on it either. If your Binocular optics are anything like the Monocular, you will be very happy.

Do you have an idea of when your binoculars were made ?

It's identical to my Mayflower #814 (APL). I had it out last night looking at Jupiter with 1 1/4 inch orthoscopic eyepieces (I've replaced the original visual back with a Vixen 1 1/4 inch one). The views were amazing with the 5 and 6 mm UO orthos (140 and 117X). You have yourself a very good telescope. The optics are outstanding..
