They feature un-coated lenses (as with most Japanese binoculars), and wide-angled 7 degree lenses. Made of aluminum, brass, and steel by Nikko (Nikon), these 10 x 70 power binoculars are in VERY NICE used condition! The lens bodies retain about 95% of their original black finish, as well as the end piece fittings.
Eye sockets are intact, and the focus adjustment still functions PERFECTLY on both eye pieces (though a bit stiff)! The optics are VERY CLEAR, but are a bit hazy, with some spotting (these could easily be cleaned up). Right lens also has a scale indicating 0-30 / 0-70.
The left side body is well marked with the impressed designation, "Nikko", and the serial number, "11570". Right side is stamped 10x70 mm. Some very slight wear due to the age, but otherwise SUPERB! The only downfall is that the rubber eye pads are missing, as they most likely dried out (common for Japanese Rubber).I have shown a similar one in use by a Japanese aviator in the last photo. Would make a SUPERB addition to any Japanese or optics collection!
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only.Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution.
