1909 according to the Mix list.

I'm disappointed we've still been unable to date them though...

Quote from: Zbig Fiema on Today at 01:14:36 amI have noticed that some slid easily onto the rail, others with some difficulty (but still do). I wonder if this is due to different assignment or wear or both..

Sure Zbig, the dovetails are very precise, so in some cases if deformed, they do not slide in the rails. In this case it is possible to carefully file the dovetail with a fine triangle file to restore the functionality.

Hi Zbig,

I would estimate it around 1908.

Here is little Goerz Berlin Pagor Trieder Binocle (bridge No 170957). Any idea when it was produced? Thanks, Zbig

Not necessarily. See the other thread that you started in which I tried to provide some clarity of different scenarios/types of binoculars.

Thanks Frank - I imagine you're meaning tampered with / demilitarised binos but they're usually fairly easy to spot.

Thank you, Niall. This is helpful.

I know we've had discussions about this topic already but there are different scenarios that appear to get mixed up. I will respond in the thread that you have created.

No Frank - Zeiss (and other German makers) made miltary binoculars with civilian names for export.

Here's a non exhaustive list of such models and discussions shown on our site.

This will be a handy record which can be added to over time and will remove the need for me to keep repeating myself and constantly looking for examples every time one is discussed.

There are often many posts added each week and it's easy to miss or overlook some (I've done it myself) so this list may help and is offered with respect.

So you are saying Zeiss has simultaneously manufactured civil models with both a military knob and a civil Markir and for later civil versions without the Markir, respectively?
