Binoculars, 6x30 power, marked "U.S. Army Signal Corps"; "Military Stereo"; "U.S. Naval Gun Factory Optical Shop Annex Rochester NY USA"; "serial No. EE 63088". The optics are somewhat cloudy, and the aiming reticle in the left eyepiece is slightly askew. The binoculars are contained within their original case, marked to the Naval Gun Factory, with a compass set into the exterior lid of the case. The lowermost portion of the case leather closure tab is torn, but the closure tab still functions.
