This is the most involved cleaning, adjusting, and restoration job I've ever done and won't recoup the $$ in time spent. This was a labor of love when I was collecting Selsis of all types. Now I'm just interested in their wides. Hence, I'm selling off this sole example of a Selsi 8x40 I have ever come across.

From the pics, you can see she was in rough shape, externally. Things were just as bad inside. Dust, film, fungus spots, and a slipped prism. All cleaned up and aligned well. Views are as good as the very similar Binolux I have for sale from the same era. On this one, the chassis received two coats of gloss black enamel. All lubed with NYE damping grease.

The carry case came sans a lid. Made a new, tight fitting one as shown. This is a great overall size and weight, a real multi purpose binocular.

Satisfaction, outright delight, guaranteed or $$ gladly refunded.

Asking $120 for the binocular, $20 shipping in the ConUs. Cash refund accompanies bin if less to your area. Check, m.o. , or the wife has PayPal.

Thanks for looking!
