    My Zeiss Glasvisier has the split lens (trapezoid shaped lens).
    Attached also a view of the Leitz Glasvisier reticle.

    The BC is typical of Hannover jobs, basically ordnance spares, offhand I can't remember if I attributed it to a steel provider. I will add more pictures of the BC tomorrow, have limited time today.

Interesting that Gl.V. marking itself seems to match the font style found on Amberg sights. Very interesting, canít wait to compare this on in further detail. By chance what is the barrel code? I canít make it out. Thanks.

See the attached picture, comparing the Zeiss Glasvisier with three sets of British WWI Magnifying Glasses.

    Wolfgang, would you mind checking your Glasvisier looking into it from the front if there a trapezoid shaped lense visible at the bottom? I've recently been told that some of those scopes should had ended up post WWI in Finland and had been modified there with a new lense and had wondered if this could be the case since in some scopes I have seen such a lense, in others not.
    Thank you, any markings on the case by chance? Like manufacturer or ink unit markings?

    Neither of my cases have any markings on them.

    Wolfgang, do you know if this lense is to be found in ALL Glasvisier/if it has a certain designation, or if could had been added like by the Finnish post WWI?

    All the German WWI issued Zeiss Galsvisiere I know had that kind of lens system.
    I know nothing about the Finnish version.
    Sorry!

    I once saw one with the Zeiss logo. But back then I did not know what it was, and did not buy it. :-(

    I did not have time to dig out my rifles, but found some old shots.
    To take more and better shots will take some time.

    Amberg 1918, # 6404 g, all matching
