Re: scope question

it is from WW2 all I know about it is what is up above and can closely place it to the early 40's. I was hoping there was a guru on here.lol

Re: scope question

Pictures will tell the tale ! Carl Zeiss is one of the best optics ever made. Jena is the town in Germany where he started. WW II stuff can be extremely valueable. Some of his models were standard issue on German sniper rifles. If you have one of those, you have a nice chunk of change.

Re: scope question

Do you know what the triangle means on the scope right above the name?

Re: scope question

I am no expert, but it has something to do with depth of field for the lens system. The way the triangle is pointing tells someone who understands the scope ( NOT ME ) something about how the scope is set up. A Zeiss optic of that time is made in a certain way for a certain application. The marks tell someone at a glance how its set up.

Re: scope question

There are a lot of knowledgeable people on here, unfortunately there are a lot that are not. I'm sure you'll get good feedback, and I don't think anyone on here would intentionally guide you in the wrong direction. I would contact Zeiss, it's amazing when you call places like that how much they like to tell you about their product.

Re: scope question

I shot an email off to a Mauser collector friend this morning concerning your scope. He just told me you may have a dandy. The triangle is called a " Lubrication Mark". If you have the correct serial number range, the scope was retro-fitted in 1944 by the German army for military use. When you post the pics, post the serial number, my source is a world authority on WW II things German.
