H049886 CASED 6 X 30 POWER ISSUE FIELD BINOCULARS. (Doppelfernrohr)

BACKGROUND: The German army used a wide variety of optical enhancement items with the 6 x 30 power, (6 power magnification with a 30mm diameter objective lens), binoculars being the standard issue optics utilized by all branches of service. Although the 6 x 30 power binoculars were the standard issue, specialized personnel such as Artillery observers, Reconnaissance personnel, Searchlight personnel, etc., required stronger optics and assorted larger power binoculars were issued to these specialized personnel on a limited basis.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Tooled alloy and aluminum construction, 6 x 30, power, binoculars with molded black bakelite fittings. The binoculars have molded, black bakelite eye sockets which are fully intact and the focus adjustment still functions. The optics are still fairly clear. The right lens has a horizontal, reticule pattern with vertical bars emanating from the center, outward, to either side in increments of 10 degrees up to 40 degrees to each side with numerals at both 20 degrees (right lense does not focus properly). The central lens joining bracket with swivel width adjustment is intact and still functions. The right hand side, ocular end, body panel is well marked with the impressed designation, "Dienstglas 6 x 30", (Service Glasses) and the manufacturer’s three letter code, "cxn" and a triangular lubricant code, signifying a lubricant which was effective in temperatures ranging from +122 to -40 degrees Fahrenheit. Interestingly, there is no serial number which I have never seen before. Some sort of black rubberized sealant has been applied around some of the fittings, perhaps for waterproofing? Comes with a very nice original bakelite case.
