Description

Kershaw vanguard binocular.7x50 mag. Serial No 70077 1950’s
Ref 1750

The Vanguard model from Kershaw was manufactured between 1947-1958, the year that Kershaw ceased binocular sales. Solidly built to military standards its unique central focusing “bar” is not seen elsewhere. With a FOV of 7.4 deg,its Porro 11 prism variation and viewing sharpness edge to edge its high cost factor meant that few civilians could afford such extravagance, something that the Swedish Navy apparently had no problems with. Comparatively few, therefore, of its 7, 10 and 12 magnification models were consequently made.

Rare, I would suggest, to find an example in such impressive condition, coated lenses un-scathed,clear lenses ( only one black spot to right lens seen), great prism alignment, minimal wear to natural handling extremities, effortless focusing operation,. Its leather case has done its job , showing some signs of wear but tightly and securely fully stitched.

A fine historical item, worthy of continued use whilst an existing collectible and future investment.
