Made in WW2 in captured French Factories, this Sighting Periscope was. A useful tool in the Wehrmacht for general observation (in both vehicles and on the ground), and for artillery fire observation and direction throughout the war. It was often seen poking out a commander's cupola, primarily as a safe method for him to observe the enemy without risk to life.
Made of aluminum, brass, and steel by Puteaux. This aiming periscope is in VERY NICE used condition. Manufactured by the Germans at the captured French factory, most of the original paint has been removed.
It appears someone was probably trying to clean it up for restoration. Some slight wear and marks due o the age. (hellblaues Kreuz or light blue cross) lubricant code, that indicates it is.Serviceable to -40 degrees C and lubricated with instrument grease 1442. The optics are 100% functional, and VERY CLEAR with NO spoting or haziness! Optical alignment is also perfect! All focus adjustment still turn as they should.
Manufacture info and markings are stamped into the tubes. I have shown this EXACT type in use in the Sd. 251 Half Track in the last photos. A PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only.
