Original Item: Only One Available. The 10 x 50 Dienstglas was one of the most used German issued binoculars of WWII. These are fully functional with clear optics and were manufactured by one of the very best makers at the time Ernst Leitz Gmbh, Wetzlar – Germany. They are nicely marked on the back of the right barrel as follows:
The back of the left barrel bears the iconic E. LEITZ / WETZLAR logo. Ernst Leitz GmbH of Wetzlar Germany is a storied producer of optical devices such as telescopes, microscopes, binoculars, and cameras. It exists today as the four different branches of the LEICA company, named for the first three letters of Leitz and the first two of Camera.
This lovely set of binoculars comes complete with original black leather carry strap, complete with a LEITZ marked leather eyepiece protector, which can be slid into place. Even better, wrapped around the far hinge is an original “Button Tab”, marked by LEITZ and even dated 1937! These were used to secure the neck strap to a button on the uniform, in case the binoculars were dropped. We have very rarely seen a pair of binoculars…
