Binocular Identification

I found this binocular that my Grandson has recently acquired, and am wondering if anyone can help with an ID ?

Jerry, post 1,
This is a special edition of Eagle Optics Inc. for their celebration of 5000 years production of top quality instruments. It is very rare, so you better keep it.

Looks like you could take a great big bite out of the view.

Fangs for this Steve . I don't think I recognise this bino but I think I will just chew on it for a while, you know, nibble away at it. But toothfully I don't think I will come up with anything.

Thanks to Jerry for posting the pic

He is 5 years old, and knows the name of every dinosaur. That is the theme, the optics
are poor, just tubes with glass, zero power, and not properly collimated, Bill.

By the way, I just got Bills new book on collimation, very educational.

There is more to the story, this same grandson just turned 5, and here is his gift from me.

An Eagles Optics Kingbird, 6.5x32, optics are good for a youngster and compact. I bought a couple
on closeout last year.
Some of the others have received a Leopold Yosemite 6x30, which is a better binocular.

I had a real interest in dinosaurs when I was a kid. Got a book (maybe a series of books) one Christmas by Life Magazine called "The World we Live In". I literally memorized the one on Dinosaurs, Still have it too. Five is a good age. I have no doubt grandpa will keep his interest up.

Nice birthday present that hopefully will help keep the young lad interested in learning.
FWIW to any other grandparents out there, my Oberkwerk 6.5x32 goes toe to toe with my Yosemite 6x30, and the hinge folds down quite a lot for kids' narrower IPD.

Jerry if you have pants and jacket that match the bino, you should keep it. A photo of you wearing this ensemble and carrying the binos would be good.

Hope your grandkids enjoy the binos as much as we have hearing about them.
