    Out this morning to peruse the local yard/garage sales for lost treasures.No cameras to speak of ,unless you count the $60.00 Argus Brick (torn case and all).
    I did pick up one item of interest ($2.00) that I can't seem to identify.A pair of old binoculars marked Kinux Stereo 8x25.Body in rough shape but the glass is clean & clear.
    My web search has turned up zilch.Can anyone shed light on this?

    Many thanks.

    Thanks Mike1234 !!
    When I viewed them under my lit magnifier I found the words Made in France.Cleaned up the glass ,a bit of lube and they work fine.
    Wonder what kind of "Skin" I can get to redo the body?

    If cost is a factor you could try textured vinyl... comes in many print styles.
