Please Help, Need Information

Postby alkrang01 on Sun Apr 12, 2009 4:24 pm

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, so forgive me if it isn't.

Anyways, I have binoculars made in Germany by "E.Leitz/Wetzlar." On the it says 3.2X OBERON and E.LEITZ WETZLAR with the numbers 511107 underneath the name. I was wondering if anyone can help me answer a few questions:

1. What year, or between what years were they made?
2. What were they typically used for, bird sighting/opera/etc?
3. What would they typically sell/auction for in USD?

Any information is most appreciated.

Again, if this is the wrong forum I apologize, please tell me where I should post this to find the answers i'm after, thank you.
