Zeiss Ww1 D.f. 6x42 Military Binoculars Wartime Manufacture For Sale
This glass is a typical example of Zeiss WWI binocular manufacture, as evidenced by the use of zinc and steel in some parts. The top cover plates are zinc, while the bottom plates are brass. The clamping screw is steel. Zinc corrodes over time, plus, someone tried to scratch off the serial number, so the markings are difficult to read. The serial number looks like 642025, while the rim number on the bottom right cover plate looks like 183832, but I'm not 100% sure of either number. The glass is clean, except for some fungus visible at the edges of each ocular's field lens. The central image is bright and sharp however, in collimation, and both oculars focus properly. On page 328 of Dr Seeger's Gray Book, there is a photo of a young Karl Dönitz, on board U 35, in 1917, wearing a pair of D.F. 6x42s just like this pair.
