A WW1 Vintage Tel Sig Mk IV three draw telescope by J H Dallmeyer of London, signed to first sleeve Tel Sig Mk IV ** (also) G.S. J H Dallmeyer London 1917 24769 and Ministry of war broad arrow, brass barrels with leather sleeve.

Easy slide and normal wear. Leather strap piece missing (storage/mounting loops) and remaining strap swinging, as shown on photos.

Lens filter slides across eyepiece well.

Optics look clear; some dust. Good for age.

The telescope focuses for my eyes when all tubes are fully drawn and my eye is a few cm back from the eyepiece. I would hate to have to read "England expects..." or "A N T I C I ..." from the deck of a heaving ship as I find it hard enough to keep the image steady on dry land! But I'm sure in the hands of an experienced operator it will stand a few more watches..

Sorry, but no Buy Now.
