WW2 M49 scope, bought years ago from the States with declared chipped prisms and a missing field lens and inner barrel (not declared!)

   I knew it would be difficult to find the inner barrel and field lens but it's now sorted and I send a hand held picture at 20x. The story I was given was that it was used at D Day by 101st Airborne.
