WW2 German SF41.Z.Gi scissor periscope

A nice early German Hensoldt Wetzlar manufactured SF41. Z.Gi scissor periscope. This version made for motorised units such as half tracks or armoured vehicles. Better known as Donkey Ears and Used commonly as a Artillery ranging perescope they fast became used for most observation work as the user could stay out the way from observation and incoming fire or shrappnel.
This set includes the following:
SF 41.Z.Gi Scissor Periscope,
Gestel 31 Scissor Tripod,
Wooden Transit case,
Tripod carrying endcaps,
Lense Rain/ Sun shields,
Leather battery box,
Reticle illumination cable and plug.
Ok these early made SF41 periscope is in as found condition with some original paint and surface rust to the body. Both lenses are ok, a little misty but do focus. There is a small dark mark on the right hand lense. The ladder pattern is intact and clear and works fine with its +and - 20 grid.
We have a wartime transit case. It has been repainted at sometime but is all correct with the canvas carry straps present and the internal compartments ok.and not broken. Also there are the two rain/ sun shields that fit over the top lenses. Also there is an-early leather battery box used in conjunction with the clip on reticle illumination cable and plug.
The Gestel 31 scissor tripod is complete and in very good condition just showing some minor paint loss as you would expect from wear. The tripod also comes with 1942 dated carrying end container caps that have been repainted in the past.
This is a great set and took me a long time to assemble for my own collection and is ready to display in any collection. Shipping please email if abroad as will go as two parcels and is heavy. (25kgs) Collection from near Portsmouth is no trouble
