Looks like it. An older pair from the 60's or 70's judging from the flat prism cover. The later T* version has a prism cover with a distinctive beveled shoulder.

Yes, looks like one of the old versions, probably from the 60's. I'd stay away from one as old as this, especially if you don't have easy access to the Zeiss repair service in Germany. Many of these old porros (but not all of them) develop some thin film on the prisms resulting in a decidedly soft image. Cleaning the prisms isn't all that simple with these old porros. Also, the rubber armouring looks quite worn, and the rubber armour of the 7x50 can take quite a beating.
