Message Detail:
Well it arrived.... my suspicions were indeed correct! the lenses are flawless! It has a clear bright sharp focus at about 20-25 power (I'm estimating) It's got a good heft to it and it is INDEED "Fletcher" not "Flelcher". As I mentioned in an earlier letter, it appears to be definately an older type, but had the Day or Night in script. Perhaps it has something to do with the size of the front lens? It's about 2 1/2 inches which would allow more light in for the image.... just a thought. The pictures the guy showed didn't do this instrument justice.... it's GORGEOUS! just needs new leather on the body and a new shutter. eather are merely cosmetic
