WW1 US Army Signal Corps Binoculars manufactured by Bausch & Lomb circa 1916. 

At the onset of World War I the Signal Corps was responsible for distributing binoculars to the Army. Non Commissioned Officers were issued binoculars, while Commissioned Officers were required to purchase their own binoculars.

Many of these binoculars were still in circulation at the outbreak of WW2 and were used throughout.

The right side objective lense housing is stamped Serial No. EE118106 on the front and the back is a circular stamp that reads BAUSCH & LOMB OPTICAL CO. ROCHESTER N.Y. on the outside. Within the circle is a small inverted triangle stamped U.S.A. 

The left side front is stamped SIGNAL CORPS/U.S. ARMY. On the back side is another circular stamp with PRISM STERO 6 POWER on the outside. Within the circle it is stamped 30mm APERT. 

The standard Army binocular was 6 power, prismatic, individually focused, with a field of view of 150 yards at a range of 1000 yards.

This pair retain their original pebble texture tan leather protective layer, paint loss to main wear points exposing brass, optics require cleaning. No straps or carry case present.

A great collectors item ideal for reenactment events.
