Question about Steiner 8x30 Binocular
The model of Steiner binoculars is on the plastic plates on the body. On earlier models mainly the green rubber covered military types is is molded at the front of the body near the objective lenses. These were called the Military/Marine and are of a different specification to the current Military/Marine. The original were a military bincocular which has more in common with the current Steiner Military. If you are after the serial number it is located on the front metal disc between the binocular barrels on a porro prism binocular. A porro is where the objective lenses are spaced further apart than the eyepieces. On a roof prism Steiner the serial number is located underneath between the two barrels on the hinge. Roof prisms are binoculars where the objective and the eyepieces are in line. If the serial number is a 10 digit number the 1st and 3rd numbers will give you the year of manufacture.
EG: 9042577777= 1994
If it is five or six digit number then it is the 1st and 2nd numbers
EG: 871245= 1987
