    Vintage Swift Saratoga MkI 8X40 Binocular

    More likely 1965, although I haven't seen this style of serial number. Maybe I just haven't noticed this before. Regards, B.

    Vintage Swift Saratoga MkI 8X40 Binocular

    Bottom photo left eyepiece, Post 1. If it had multicoating I don't think the reflection would be so visible.

    Vintage Swift Saratoga MkI 8X40 Binocular

    Hi Jerry, Maybe 1975. It does seem to have a squared off exit pupil. Claimed field is 9.3 degrees, but it would need to be measured. Your self portrait in the eyepiece is reasonably good.
