Hi,

 

I found this M-6 periscope at a small antique store in west Texas while I was visiting family for Thanksgiving.  It's rough but for $5 I didn't pass it up...

 

Was this used on many/most WWII-era tanks?

The other side isn't as bad.

Nice for only $5! I believe these were used in most US WWII tanks.

For $5 not bad at all! Those small west Texas antique stores can have some nice finds.
