That Barton Linnard Ltd., Folding Minim 5.5x16 is a fascinating design. Nice to see how it's put together. You have great skills, Frank.

The AGA Baltic binos are marked with three crowns and a serial number, which makes me think they were Swedish military equipment. I know AGA made surveying equipment (geodometers), so binos aren't a big surprise.

Since you're in Canada, here's an unusual pair of old English binoculars currently posted on Ottawa Kijiji: https://www.kijiji.c...1020/1501655266.
