LEICA LEITZ ELCAN 7X50 MILITARY NATO BINOCULARS +FILTERS +CAPS RARE CRACKLE MINT
This rare Leica military Elcan 7x50 binoculars are in near mint condition cosmetically, mechanically and optically. Serial #07841. Military serial #1240-21-863-8282. Comes with all its originals included the military strap, yellow slip on fog filters, rubber eye cups and front and rear rubber eye cap covers.
This is a very LATE # production special CRACKLE FINISH version. Not like the regular black painted version. These are a special pair that look like they were never issued to the military
Originally made for NATO forces. Only 7500 examples ever made and for military use only. Most were heavily used or destroyed. These are extremely hard to find and of the highest quality. Probably cost a fortune for the military to order.
Cosmetically this is one of THE NICEST pairs I have ever seen. I have sold a few recently and this one is outstanding. NEAR MINT! Working perfectly and the optics are probably the best in the world. As I stated, MILITARY grade! Only the best of the best and never meant for civilian use.
They have the 4,2,+2,4 markers horizontally and vertical lines for distance measurements. I can not stress the beauty, overall condition and quality of these phenomenal binoculars. If you want the finest ELCAN (ERNST LEITZ CANADA ) Military grade, REALLY THE BEST OF THE BEST binoculars made, here is your chance and a rare opportunity to find them complete with all the extra. Really fantastic and a great price considering! A must have. I recently sold a few and this is one of the nicest so far!
Not only a piece of history, but also the finest usable binocular. Practical, Usable, THE BEST of THE BEST and really a pleasure to have and enjoy in every respect! Complete and amazing to find in this condition. Especially the later very rare CRACKLE finish version. WOW!
