Panzer Bino–German Hensoldt Wetzlar 7×56 Binocular
Always trying to obtain one of this famous ‘Panzer Binocular’,
May be its size it is a bit long for infantry use, but it fits with the Panzer commanders whose need a more powerful binocular to cover his range.
Eventually found this sweet 7 x 56 field glass and case from a gun parts shop in good price.
Over all in good condition and the lens are clean and clear, only the paint on metal has a lot of wear.
Case needs re-stitching and carrying strap needs to be replace.
Strip off the old black paint on metal, sprayed matt black then semi gross clear.
Marking shown its a late war item: marked “Hensoldt Wetzlar 27942” on the frame and “frn44” on the catch.
