Subject: Telescope, US Signal Service - Few Questions Concern'g

Message Detail:
Melanie,

Has your glass also a number engraved into the eye piece barrel section and if so could you share it with us please?

Did it perhaps come with an extra red or yellow eye filter lens and does your glass show evidence of cross-hairs when looked through? We know of a documented war-time 30X Jas. Queen glass which had has come down to us with a red lens mounted in a separate interchangeable screw-on eyepiece and an additional main barrel clamp holder fitted with a swing down wood screw and wing nut adjustment swivel assembly for securing the telescope to a fence post, window jam or such fixture.

Tnx,
Walt
