Offer: Binoculars, old 10 x 50 (Henbury BS10) Gifted - These were my dad’s binoculars, so possibly 40-50 years old. Charles Frank make, Frank-Nipole Coated optics, 10 x 50 magnification, 5 degree field of view. The right eye-piece wobbles about a lot, making them tricky to use. Hence need some TLC. The lens covers have got lost..... if there were any, but there is a battered case! Collect from Henbury (Crow Lane) or I could deliver in the BS10 area, or nearby. Frank
