Very Rare Blue Coated Tasco 110 Super Wide 7x35 withCase Cleaned+
Very Rare Blue Coated Tasco 110 Super Wide 7×35 w/Case: Cleaned+. Was surprised and happy to find these were the earlier Blue Coated version when they arrived. Had to replace a badly chipped upper left prism. A somewhat common occurrence with such old optics. Its otherwise nice cosmetic conditiion is most likely the result of the damage early on so it sat in the case till now. While they were out for a cleaning, I blacked the sides of all four prisms. Lubed the focuser and right diopter. Added a leather carry strap for the optic that came off a US military 6×30 that was in much better shape than the dried out, thinner original strap. Still had to cut out a bad spot on the military strap and glued it up so that it is a bit shorter and places the bin higher up for safer carry. The replacement prism came from a B&L Mk-28 7×50 and is actually better made than the Jap original because of its grooved hypotenuse. There is just the tiniest chip on the edge of the replacement, visible when viewed backwards through the objectives. Most would never notice if not pointed out. Absolutely does not effect normal viewing which are superb and astonishingly wide, of course. So much so, that my wife says she feels as if she is standing in front of one of those huge dioramas in the New York Museum of Natural History! Objectives are near pristine. Ocular lenses show some cleaning marks, the left more than the right. Again, views seem unaffected and most old optics come with such previous user damage to one extent or another. The case is in great shape missing its carry strap that came dry rotted and missing its buckle, so I tossed it. Interesting silver, or grey, lining with a gold Tasco Imperial emblem on the lid! Later ones were plush purple lined. Another thing I noted was the words MAGNESIUMBODY on the right prism cover run together. My later made model in the collection, just a few hundred serial# digits higher than this one, has them separated slightly. And an even later, Amber Coated, iteration I have listed here has the words even farther apart. This set, as with the other I have listed here, came missing their really shallow, screw off plastic eye cups. So I’ve added a set of suitably sized rubber O-rings to hide the screw threads and yield a more finished look. Many owners removed the cups so as to get the widest possible views, and later lost them. Two additional sets of O-rings will be included. Extremely hard to find replacement cups! This JB-160 Super Wide and others like it, such as the beautiful Sears and similar Cardinal models, to name a few very few! Are what led that era to now be called The Golden Age of Japanese Binocular Production. You’ll find a LOT of 10.5 and 11 degree extra wides that are usually BK-7 loaded, but just as well made. These Super Wides are far rarer and much sought after, especially when in good shape, as this one now is after a few hours of intense labor. The blue coating gives warmer views than the amber ones which I personally prefer. Though I’ve also a few amber coated vin bins in the collection such as Swift products from the same era. An 8×40 Saratoga is a favorite! This brave young man deserves our support for having defended his community and upholding our embattled Constitutional rights during a recent Looney Left riot. Addendum: added a blue women’s belt as a carry strap. It matches the blue coated objectives and is stronger than the original leather carry strap that is still included if needed as a display piece. I wouldn’t use and trust it on such a precious optic. The item “Very Rare Blue Coated Tasco 110 Super Wide 7×35 withCase Cleaned+” is in sale since Wednesday, September 16, 2020.
