I recently acquired a scope Marked B. Nickel Supra Maarburg/l 4-16x56 e/d made in Germany. Does anybody have any info on this? Value ,age? I will probably sell it as I don't have need for such a big scope.

I think you will find that the B. Nickel Marburg scopes and the Gerhardt Nickel scopes are quite different.  They haven't been imported for a number of years.  The B. Nickel scopes that I own are of reasonable quality I have a 4x with a #1 reticle and 4-10x with a very small dot.  The variables have front focal plane reticles and are not constantly centered.    The dot is nearly invisible below about 6x.  It is about 1" at 10x. 
 
There were a lot of small optics manufacturers in Germany of which B. Nickel was one.  Hertel & Reuss is another that is also owned by Gerhardt Nickel.  They manufactured the first Weatherby scopes.  The ones which have the windage and elevation in the same turret and focus in the second turret. 
 
Is your scope a rail or conventional type and if so what is the tube diameter.  My 4-10x is a 27mm tube. Sort of hard to find rings.  If you want to sell the scope I may be interested.

A digital caliber gives a tube diameter of 30mm. It looks very clear to me, and it's also quite large. Yes I want to sell it , I don't need anymore scopes and want the money for other projects.

 Thanks for the information.

What kind of shape is it in?  Could you post some pictures or email me some.  Any rings with it?  Any idea what you need to get for it? 
 
Thanks

Here are the pics, It has some rub marks from sitting in a box with other stuff. It also looks like somebody put touch up paint over ring scrapes. No scratches on glass. Has German reticle.
