As seen on page 255 of Hans Seeger's "Green Book", graticule / sight as per his illustration.
Serial number 2253870 , this came from a gent in the US who had obtained it along with some other items from a US veterans family, it appears not to have been touched in 70 odd years, as good as the day it was made.

Is this a true monocular or rather the half of a binocular?

James Stewart

Pretty sure monocular , well machined and finished, not simply left side of a bonocular.

Frank Weissörtel

Looking at the last pic the metal piece on the left side looks like as if it was part of the hinge. Would you have a clue what purpose it served? This thing actually made me think that it maybe was half of a binocular as it looked like as if the bino was cut.

Thank you, James.

So it seems as if it got attached to another device via the holes.

I saw some mentioned in Forums and one or two sold on eBAy (unfortunately I could not get one for my collection. :-( ). I saved some photos. There is a cross-hairs reticle with a square. One suggestion (on a forum or maybe private comms) was, it was for a radar aiming device !?

That is what is in it Uli, thank you for the info  on what it was used on. (Js).

The ocular rubber looks the same as the U.D.F. and the R.Z.A. rubbers.

James Stewart

Was looking at a UZO last night Wim , exactly the same.

I'm not sure, but this monocular reminds me of the one on the Lichtsprechgerät 250/130. Although this model used a Zeiss 15 x 60, Zeiss also produced smaller types. Reticle seems to be indentical.
