Hi fellow collectors

at first glance this set does not look spectacular, however, when looking at the case it becomes obvious that this binocular is one of the first binoculars of the Swiss army and one of the last before in 1897 the Swiss government allowed the purchase of Zeiss field glasses.

The glass itself has the number 64 and the stamp 96 on the case indicates the year 1896.

Cheers
Frank
