Unfortunately Dennis, most of my binos over the years have been like yours...costly, used twice to view a goat or a cloud, then lovingly returned to the box. Obsession...it's not just a perfume by L'Oreal!
These Monarch HGs are for sale on an Irish website. I know this pair well, I used to own them! I bought them new, but decided I didn't need them, and sold them on to a guy who bought them for his son.
I don't know why they're for...
