I just purchased a very cute pair of the subject binoculars and in doing a bit of research found that these were commonly counterfeited...
I have no reason to believe that these are counterfeit, and the little research I could do, especially considering that I am a nuvo binocrat... I'd like your input!
Congratulations Jeff !
Your CZJ binocular is fully legit and besides the good condition from your pictures, it holds the 1Q code that means the Highest quality according to the German Democratic Republic (DDR). More about the DDR Q-codes here (in German)
" 1Q: Erzeugnis hervorragender Güte, verkörpert den wissenschaftlich- technischen Höchststand zum Vergabezeitpunkt, entspricht vergleichbaren Spitzenerzeugnissen des Weltmarktes"
Traslation: "Excellent quality product, representing the highest scientific and technical value at the time of submission, equal to comparable top products on the world market"
Enjoy the wide field views and welcome to the vintage Zeiss binos!
