Help needed in identifying the year in which some older binoculars I came across were manufactured. Here is a discription: Bushnell Expo Extra Power/ thumb focus/ British Hong Kong/ cream colored/ no model # anywhere/ fully coated computed balanced optics around left lens/floatable impact resistant glass. Nicely made of plastic, etc.
Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you

I doubt there is a way to ID the year.  The computed optics thing probably puts it in the 1980's, as does the Hong Kong manufacture.  But honestly that is just a guess based on some vague years on some other stuff I'm a little familiar with.
 
Is there some reason you need the year?  Usually questions like this ask "is this binocular any good"?

I have a pair, and at a guess 1965-1970. 
It should float on water too!

Simon,
Mine float also, they all float on the bottom of the water, instead of on the top. Bubble Bath
