Warner & Swasey Prism Field Glass Power 8 Binoculars, 1902
Here is an incredible pair of antique binoculars. They were manufactured by Warner & Swasey out of Cleveland, Ohio, and are marked with a patent date of March 18, 1902. This sale includes half of the original leather case (the lid is missing) and the original instruction manual. The binoculars work great and focus smoothly. They are in good cosmetic condition with typical wear in the leatherette coating and some scratching to the metal. The front metal face has some significant scratching where it looks like someone engraved their name, but later scratched it out. The lenses have some dust typical of antique binoculars.
