These binoculars are from WW ll. They were made in occupied Japan. The description is legible as you can see. The binoculars and case in good condition. Just wondering if they had any value to them. All replies appreciated

    They are actually post WW II, being manufactured between Sept. 1945 & April 1952. We did not occupy Japan until they surrendered in Sept. and the war was over in August. Probably manufactured in late 40's to early 50's.
