I started collecting military items after the first item I purchased was that pair of periscope binoculars. After a little research I found a relative of our fine political leaders in government manufactured these for the Vietnam conflict at a sale price of $25,000.00 each. Not sure what is so special about them; but they got me collecting stuff from military veterans, now I have piles of military collectables next to my slot machine in the man cave basement.

    At $25,000, just goes to show why this great country is where it is at now. I started collecting some military items ever since my aunt gave me my uncle's WWII uniform and medals, one day I caught her just as she was pitching all his WWII photos in the trash, I had her dig them out and hold on to them till I could come see her, she wondered why I would want them and I told her it's my familys history.

    Doing more research on those periscope binoculars and found hebrew manufactured markings on them. Not even made in the USA? Not sure who manufactured them with the Israeli government marks and US marks. The Marine said military issue Vietnam and dated 1963 AFV No2 was also used by Britian military Israeli Marked British MK. I Trench Periscope Binoculars and found one on the internet surplus site unused from the 1980's. Thinking the $25,ooo.00 each was our importation costs? Still looking for a chinese copy mark.
