Hi everyone,

I picked up a pair of porros labeled "Zeiss," but I can't for the life of me identify what exactly they are!

They appear superficially similar to the Zeiss Jena Deltrintems and Jenoptems, but with some differences:

1. There is no Zeiss or Zeiss Jena corporate logo, only the text "Zeiss Coated Optics"
2. There is no model name, only the specs and serial: "Size 8x30 Field 75° No 12900"
3. It uses unpainted flathead screws, including on the angle gauge.
4. The angle gauge itself doesn't look like any of the Jena ones.
5. There is a small crest on the front that is a diamond with a C inside of it with an even smaller S inside the C.
6. There is no indication of where they were manufactured.

Any insight into who made these, model, when they were produced, etc.?
