In the 50s when I was a kid my Dad used these to look at his old coins. (while I looked on learning). Has 2 lens's... 1st> 3x.. 2nd> 3.5x... & if U put the both together U have 6x... I know math would tell U it's 6.5, but it's stamped 6x...! Little did I know, I am useing them today... ( their a handy peice of equipment when U get up in age) LoL.....Thanks Dad, Oooo & Thanks for lookin!

    I have the same one and I got it from my Dad too! He used it at work as a Machinist and now I use it at work as a Foreman in the powdered metal parts industry.

    I have one of these little gems, it is marked A & A 10x My wife used it when she managed a jewelry dept at Sears. I use it to read the stamped mint marks on coins
