You can contact H.E. Gibbs in Amsterdam, NY. They do custom work on old B&L optics.

The B&L Balvar8A has eye piece focus.  Most I have seen have etched tapered cross hairs.  They also often have a bunch of fuzz in them which I believe is from the flocking that is used on the inside of the tube.  Great optics though.  I have several older B&Ls, including an 8A.  I hope this helps.
