Antique Carl Zeiss Binoculars?
We don't deal in used, antique or collectibles. Sorry. I would keep surfing the internet for information.
If the serial number is anywhere on these glasses, you can easily find out when they were made. Look up http://www.europa.com/~telscope/binotele.htm
and scroll down to Zeiss cumulative production numbers to date your binoculars.
There is a wealth of background on Zeiss products, both here and from the Zeiss Historical Society, so you should be able to find the information you are looking for.
[/img][/img]e="Gspotter"]Guest appearance, So, I have this really old pair of Carl Zeiss Binoculars, they are in awesome condition, including the original case they came in. They look WWI or WWII vintage. I,ve been SURFING the web for Antique C.Z. Jena Binoculars, prices, styles, age, etc. Not finding the info-source I need! HELP?[/quote]
That's because the old Jena's are not truly Carl Zeiss. Carl Zeiss and Zeiss Jena have been historically two different organizations and quite different binoculars. Carl Zeiss has purchased Zeiss Jean, recently, but if your binos are old, they are either Carl Zeiss or Zeiss Jena, not both. Try a search on Zeiss Jena
I would do a GOOGLE search, not for that exact binocular, necessarily, but for a collector who handles that vintage and start there. Sorry, we don't really get much action on collectibles on this forum. We're really about current binoculars.
