Bushnell 10X42 binos, what do I have?

I have a set of Bushnell black armoured 10X42 porro binoculars. They were bought in the early 90's I think.

They have 13-2010 and 320 ft at 1000 yds on the central focus shaft button.
National Audubon Society on the left barrel.

Any input welcome, thanks.

Edit: I have found the general stuff on the net. I'm looking for experience from use and any horror stories about build quality.

Are they actually 10x40's? Sounds like the Custom's...

Edit - scratch that, FOV is too wide to be a Custom.

10X42 for sure.
The button on the front of the focus shaft says Japan (pleasant surprise) with a AD to the left of the logo B and a triangle with a K inside to the right. There is a sn below.

That's the 10x version of the Natureview. I haven't tried the 10x but the 8x are quite nice for the price. --AP
