Right side eye piece has a gradient scale/rangefinder. There is some slight spotting and dust particles! The center features a prominent data plate indicating all manufacture information, as well as a Navy Anchor stamp. The 80mm front objectives are slightly recessed... And it still retains the original tripod mount!
The AMAZING feature is that the original rubber eye shields are still soft flexible, with NO hardening! This is NOT common, as Japanese rubber turns to a hard plastic, and deforms over time.
Comes complete in the original wood crate... But sadly, some of the internal compartments are broken/missing. The BONUS is that still retains the original tools, cheesecloth... And TWO sets of filters!
Missing the main data plate, and the wood is cracked in area. It would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display!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.
