RARE c: 1920 CARL ZEISS JENA TELSEXOR 16X40 INDIVIDUAL EYEPIECE FOCUS BINOCULARS





































Description

RARE 1923 CARL ZEISS JENA TELSEXOR 16x40 BINOCULARS IN ORIGINAL CASE 

 

FROM THE ESTATE COLLECTION OF ITALIAN PRINCE MONTINO BOURBON DEL MONTE DI SAN FAUSTINO

(The Bourbon del Monte di San Faustino family origin and lineage traces back ~ 1,200 years to the time of Charlemagne, emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, who granted the family its original patent of nobility.)

 

This particular serial # 1191026 was made in 1923 per the Carl Zeiss Archives in Germany

 

Beautifully aged leather on binocular body is in excellent condition

 

Blackened brass & steel shows wear commensurate with age/usage

 

Individually adjustible oculars/eyepieces operate properly, smoothly

 

Optical Characteristics:

16 mm magnification

40 mm lens diameter

2.5 exit pupil diameter

3.16º FOV 

 

Optics are clear and bright

 

Hinge pin operates very smoothly and is not loose or tight

 

Binocular covering is nice and tight to prism housings

 

Stamped "Carl Zeiss Jena" on left eyepiece

Stamped "Telsexor 1191026 16 x 40" on right eyepiece

 

Original "Carl Zeiss Jena" stamped  case shows significant wear and weathering commensurate with age/use but still solidly constructed & functional

 

Leather straps damaged on case and missing from binoculars themselves

 

Information obtained directly from the Carl Zeiss Archives in Jena, Germany:

 

The Telsexor binoculars were made from 1918 to 1930 in Germany and twice as strong as the more commonly produced 8x40 binoculars which were commonly used for astronomical observation. This particular model could be handheld for short periods of observations but worked best with a tripod for longer observations due to the high magnification and the exaggeration of hand trembling. The optical characteristics are a magnification of 16 mm, a lens diameter of 40 mm and an exit pupil diameter of 2.5 mm. The FOV (field of view) is 3.16 degrees.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: 

 

Please use the shipping calculator to calculate shipping costs to your destination. Click on the highlighted See all details under the listed price.  Select your country from the drop down menu and the overseas shipping costs will appear below. 

 

I ship worldwide and recommend USPS EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL for all international shipments as this option provides tracking, insurance and faster delivery times (3-5 business days).

 

I also offer cheaper shipping options but please note that USPS First Class Mail International (for packages weighing 4 lbs. or less) and USPS Priority Mail International DO NOT PROVIDE TRACKING and a specific date of delivery is completely out of my control (sometimes taking over a month for USPS First Class Mail International shipments). Please keep this in mind if you choose one of these alternate shipping methods.

 

As a safeguard, ALL INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS ARE INSURED to protect buyers in the event items are not received or damaged. REFUNDS for the full purchase price + shipping costs are issued once buyers complete a simple claim form. 

 

International buyers are responsible for any customs fees and/or taxes imposed by their country. Please check with your local post office for any fees not included here that you may be subjected to.

 

I cannot mark any item as a GIFT for overseas customers as it is illegal to do so and violates U.S. and international law.

All items are guaranteed to be as described and I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. Pictures and description are of the actual item you will receive and are accurate visual and verbal representations of the item.

About Us

Remember how much fun it is to get something for way less than retail?!!

 

I do and I love finding these kinds of deals for others. I'm not a huge retailer with lots of overhead so I'm able to offer items at substantially lower prices. Shopping should be fun and easy and since online buying can be risky, it is important to deal with reputable sellers. I work hard to earn the trust of my customers and treat ALL buyers, including new Ebayers & international customers, with integrity and fairness. And while there may be times I can't beat the Ebay "monopolies" in pricing, I CAN GUARANTEE SUPERIOR CUSTOMER SERVICE & SAFE TRANSACTIONS with a trustworthy seller.
