Re: Two Types of US Trench Periscopes

Neat items Baron, both periscopes and their cases look to be in remarkably good condition, especially for their age. smile

Re: Two Types of US Trench Periscopes

Thank you all for your nice comments! I have always been a person who enjoys all kinds of optical instruments, especially military and these periscopes are some of the most interesting! smile  Barron
