moreGenuine Tom Corbett space cadet binoculars; manufactured by Galter Products Co. These are surprisingly sturdy binoculars for a kids toy! They were constructed of durable metal with eye popping red plastic eyepieces for eye to lens contact. The space binoculars actually work quite well and are pretty fabulous (if I may be permitted to comment as a child of the 50's).
As you would expect an adjustment knob in the center of the bridge controls for focus. The lenses are an eccentric eerie yellow described on original box as “yellow mystery sodium vapor lenses. (very space age) comes complete with original black plastic lanyard for more casual spying!
The binoculars originally had decals. I’m afraid somewhere along the way, curious little space hands must have peeled them off! Binoculars appear to be in great condition overall - the glass appears to be unscratched or hindered in any way. There are casual cuffs on the metal body, due, of course to their age and target market.
Metal bridge is embossed, "sport glass Chicago, USA"
