British Near Mint WW2 RAF 6E/383 B 5x40 Prism Mk IV Night Binoculars With Felt Lined Carrying Case. Sn 15625 - 15625
These are a near mint pair of British RAF 6E/383 B 5x40 Prism Mk IV night binoculars complete with their original felt lined carrying case with a carrying strap. These binoculars were extensively used by the RAF night fighter squadrons and by Costal Command in daytime search duties. The binoculars are engraved *5 BINO PRISM Mk IV No 6562 6E/383 B and a crowfoot. The binoculars have a low magnification but a large objective lens giving them good image reproduction in poor or dark visibility. The binoculars have a fixed focus where the focus has to be performed with a screwdriver. This makes sure that the binoculars are always focused when used. The B in the title designation means that the lenses are bloomed which improves light gathering, thereby improving the image brightness. This is seldom encountered in wartime binoculars. The optics and prisms are in a superb unmarked condition. The binoculars retain their original black painted and mottled finishes to the body and the one piece rubber eyecup is in perfect condition. The grey painted composite pressed cardboard case is lined with thick grey felt and has a cloth carrying strap and case securing strap. The price includes U.K. delivery. Sn. 15625
