Found these at a flea market and am trying to determine when they were used. Also is there a good ref site on military binoculars? I can't seem to find one on the internet.

 

Top left panel is marked : BUREAU OF ORNANCE U.S. NAVY

 

Top right panel is marked : MARK VII

No 2211

 

Front left panel: PRISM STEREO 6 POWER 30 mm APERT

 

Front right panel :BAUSCH & LOMB OPTICAL CO. ROCHESTER NY U.S.A.

 

They are in excellent condition with NO CHIPS,CRACKS, or HAZING. A small piece of the leather is missing on one side and there is some wear on the black enamel as shown.

 

I have no use for them if anyone is interested, if not I'll just hold on to them as they look good in my collection.

regards,

Bob Frey

Follow the link for some info. The version you have is pre WW2 and used early war. Send me your email address and I will send you a copy of the Army manual for their version of these binos.
