Hello,

I have been sitting on these binocs for about 15 years now and I really dont know how much they are worth.  I have seen some go for as much as 2200 US dollars on ebay.

Mine are in very good condition.  The leather strap however is not attached anymore, but I have it.  The paint is chipping in just a couple of spots and it's very minor and also there is minor cracking on the rubber peices, hardly noticeable.  

The markings under the rubber pieces are ...
7x50 46184 BLC

I tracked that serial number to either 1911 or 1912.

Again, I am wondering what these could sell for.  I am planning on selling these in the VERY near future.

Thank you,
Shawn

This is confusing.  I keep finding contradicting information on the serial numbers. 

This website dates them to early 1900s

Here is a picture of the binoculars I own that I found on the Internet...  http://www.trinitymarine.co.uk/products/132/2898/good_pair_of_kriegsmarine_7x50_u_boat_binoculars/

Any idea how much these could fetch at auction?
