Beautiful Davidson D275 scope with the original red, hardwood case in excellent condition. This scope was manufactured sometime before 1964, and the Davidson serial # is 400. The housing and stainless steel bore of the scope are superb condition (like new). The lenses and coatings also are flawless and the optics are incredibly sharp. The internal diagonal mirror has some very fine, spidery marks on one side, but these should not affect its use in any way. This scope retails new from Davidson for just under $10 000, and generally sells on the used market for between $3500 and $4500 dollars. I was (and may still) consider putting this scope up for consignment at the going rate of $4000. However, it would probably take ~6-10 months to get a return on it this way. But if you can wait, and would like to make a very good profit, I have the contact info. I am selling this scope for $1300 obo.
This scope was manufactured to extremely exacting specifications for use as an industrial and optical alignment tool. I can email you a web site address to check out the specs on this instrument. Thanks for looking!
