Hi All,
I discovered this forum while researching Swift Audubon bino's that I remembered from my teens. My first pair were Swift 7x50 TecnaR ZIF excellent for the money UK£17 (all I could afford) in 1965.
I always aspired to Audubons. Today FB Marketplace came up trumps Gold Stripe Serial No 84**** (MY1984) . Some internal fungus, missing a rubber eye guard but otherwise perfect - no - spectacular - views .
Just like to say thanks for all the knowledge gleaned on here over the past few days.
Now to source 40mm Eye Guards and a find a Swift specialist to clean up the internals.
Best regards,
Stay well,
Seasons Greetings!
