Please post a pic of the lens of this beautiful scope. That is not the lens , it is the lens cell that the lens is housed in ... Thanks for responding to requests ...

Thank you for your kind prompt response. I am interested in bidding on your scope. Lens views help in deciding ...

Hello,

 

Please could we have a picture of the large lens at the front of the scope. Also, there should be some more engraving on the lens cell.

Hi, front lens photos attached, there is engraving which is Nr 226 (difficult to make out) but have tried to show the detail on the cropped pic.

 

Hope this all helps,

 

Gerard

It´s my perception or the "nr 226" is written on the lens?

Hi, no, the Nr 226 is on the rim of the lens holder inside, not engraved onto the lens.

 

Thanks

Gerard

It's most likely written with a pencil on the lens rim, as it is on mine and others I've seen.
