1965877 Zeiss D.F. 7x50 T
« on: October 10, 2018, 04:31:40 PM »
Here for sale a Zeiss D.F. 7x50 T, but I have some doubt about the engraving.

Apparently it does not bear traces of other incisions.

What do you think ?

In the offer, by mistake there is also the image of another pair of binoculars. Image 4 (It may be a Binoctem ?)

Hasn't it merely been de Nazified Rodolfo? I have a similar GM 7x50 somewhere. ;)

Yes Niall,
it may be ! Me too I have a GM denazified, but this one seem in some places repainted. Look at the left eyepiece, the paint that is lifting. Furthermore logo Zeiss too much white and both the T and the 9 of the serial number black filled.

Do not you think ?  ;)

Dear Rodolfo,

Yes, I think you're right. This Hydron has certainly been tampered with. According to Hans's red list it ought to have the "Artl. nr. xxxxx" marking on the right hand plate.

Well spotted - nice watertight oculars though. ;)
