Bring-Back World War II German 6X30 Dienstglas Binoculars with
Original Leather Neck Strap. Extremely RARE Bakelite model
manufactured around 1944-1945 by the world famous optics firm Emil
Busch AG, Optische Industrie, Rathenow (secret maker code cxn).
Right out of the woodwork from an estate within the last 2 months...
Have never been in a collection.
These are known to be the rarest model
of German “Dienstglas” military binoculars made by the German war machine
during WWII. Right frame flat is marked “Dienstglas 6X30”. Left
frame flat is marked “cxn”, which was the
maker code for Emil Busch AG during the war. No chips, cracks, or scratches
in lenses. Range grid can be seen when looking through right lens.
There are a few small stress fractures on the bottom edge of the
right frame barrel, but they're hard to see when the binoculars are
displayed. One of the two Bakelite hinge rings at the top of the
frame is cracked, but the hinge is still solid and not loose. It
looks like this can be repaired. Bakelite eyepieces are in excellent
shape, no chips or cracks, and turn freely as they should.
The blue triangle tactical mark /
designation on the top hinge metal support disc signifies that these
optics are functional in sub-zero cold weather, which is a feature
that the German Army was the first to invent for military optics
because of their experience on the Eastern Front. All lenses are in
excellent condition... No chips or cracks anywhere. The left
objective lens housing is a bit loose when seated in the frame, as one of the
retaining rings looks to be missing. I think this also can be
repaired. Optics are dirty, so the view is not as clear as it could
be. Original leather neck strap still present... no rips or tears.
as usual and FREE shipping within the U.S., so good luck.
