Bought as part of the job lot with the fake Zeiss 10X50, that were not so fake after all.

In nice condition, bit dirty on the inside, flakes and stuff.
The butt cap for the hinge is missing, this might have had the makers/vendors name.

I have put them here as I don't think they have the flavor of ww1, but not post 45 either.

Bit a guess really, unless anyone can cast some light on them at all

They have a strange French taste ...  ;)

You are absolutely right. I found a small hidden marking under the ocular focusing bar, says made in France.

Had not seen it until I started examining them in detail inch by inch with a magnifying glass.

Thanks Don,
in France there were some small producers who produced worthy binoculars. Have you tried it ?

The collimation is not good, double circles, very obvious, most like from misalignment of the oculars.
