MINT & SAHARA CASINO 12 x50 CF PROMOTIONAL BINOCULARS SET

Collection of Mark Ohno

Miniature pattern binoculars from 35-65 years ago are often encountered with an accompanying case, and are occasionally encountered with the original sales box, but for some reason they are almost never encountered with their original sales receipt. These King 12x 40 binoculars were purchased new in 1972 from Greens (presumably a camera shop chain) by an individual from Ferndown, East Dorset (near Poole and Bournmouth) in the UK for £12.99. (aprox $21.46 at 2014 exchange rates).

The vast majority of carry cases that came with these miniature binoculars were not marked with the binocular brand name. But perhaps 2% were marked for certain brands, certain models, at certain times. Here are some of these.
