A US Navy MK I Quartermaster’s Spyglass by arguably America’s finest optics company, Kollmorgen Optical Corp. It is dated 1942 and has a 2⅝ inch diameter objective lens with 16 power magnification. This brass telescope has been stripped of the original military enamel painted finish, polished, cleaned and then plated with a thin layer of gold to prevent tarnishing and minimise the need for cleaning. It has then been mounted on a custom made bracket fitted to a period wooden tripod stand. The optics have been fully refurbished to the highest standards and the tripod comes with a newly made hardwood floor stand to provide stability.
