Vintage Ross Tropical Seven Binoculars & Leather Case Superbly Clear Optics FWO
A Pair of Vintage Ross ( London ) Tropical Seven 7 x 40 British Made Binoculars, in their Leather Case.
These were purchased together with some British Military items, and although there is nothing to indicate it they may well have a past Military or Services connection.
Their Serial No is ...3678.
They are not marked as such but from my research I am pretty sure these are 7 x 40, the larger Lenses are 40 mm in diameter.
Condition is good, used, the Lenses have extremely minor wear and have no chips, cracks or major damage.
One of the Rubber surrounds at the smaller Optics end has a split as shown clearly, but otherwise both have only minor wear / signs of use and are in place firmly.
There is a minuscule amount of dust inside ( only really visible from the large optic end ) but this does not affect the clarity of these optics at all ( which is very good indeed ) they focus as intended and the view in use is extremely clean, clear and sharp.
Both of the focusing Eyepieces work smoothly and firmly with no slack.
The Eyepieces have very minimal wear but they have no cracks or major damage.
The Body Metalwork shows some minor wear and signs of age but it has no major damage or structural issues.
The Black Wraps are both good and firmly in place, they have no losses.
Both the Khaki Strap and the Case Strap are strong and intact.
The Brown Leather Case again has some minor wear, the Hinge is detached and will need repair to make the Case serviceable, but the Clasp is intact and works well.
Apart from that all the Case attachments, seams and stitching are intact and firm.
These Binoculars are superb quality and a very well made item, they work extremely well.
They are comparatively scarce and would make a great addition to a collection, gift, and /or contemporary accessory.
All the above is as shown comprehensively in the many pictures, please examine them in close up before you offer, to satisfy yourself as to condition, suitability, etc. of the item(s) shown.
I always show items in their true light, and will never deliberately hide a negative or detrimental aspect.
The Binoculars measure approx' :- 16.0 cms Deepest, x 17.70 cms Widest. x 7.0 cms Highest when laid flat.
They weigh :- 899.0 gms un-Cased and unpacked for Shipping. ( 1,464 gms Cased ).
Any questions please get in touch, and good luck should you decide to offer.
I will post in the U.K. by First or Second Class Recorded Mail, and Worldwide by Royal Mail International Signed For.
I believe these to be more secure postal methods, and better for the peace of mind of both buyer and seller, they are well worth the extra cost, as they are all trackable and /or require a signature on delivery.
More than one lot to the same address at the same time will of course be at a discount, please get in touch with your requirements for a quote.
To all potential buyers ... Should you consider my Postage Charges to be expensive I would rather you didn't offer and then leave me bad Detailed Seller Ratings on Postage Cost afterwards, ....I would much prefer that you first take into account the Postage Costs which are displayed clearly in the Listing, and then offer accordingly. Many Thanks.
I always provide a Top-Class Service, and a well packed item, please see my response for references.
Thank-you for looking.
