I was going through my grandpa’s collection he brought back and was wondering if these binoculars were ones the Nazis used. I realize there German because of the writing on top the binoculars case, but I don't know if they were military issued or some basic random German binoculars?

Thanks again

Does your pair have a brand name on them? If so I might

be able to tell you. Also, I have a pair exactly like those as well as another pair-that match exactly like the pair that Skipper recently showed.

Some brands used in WWII by the Germans include Steiner, Karl Ziess and Leupold (SP?) I know there were many makers but those are the ones I could think of--and all of those DID indeed get used my the military.

To me they look older than WW2.

Have a look here for pictures of the Dienstglas - German WW2 binoculars.
