If you can locate the serial number on the body of the binocular you could try contacting Kowa directly and see if they have access to info on past models.

Kowa Optics

You could also do a google search with the information that is stamped on the binocular.

Kowa optics are very good to excellent.

I just heard back from kowa, they said they dont have most of their post WWII records from overseas which is where these came from, oh well they are still some of the best binos that i've looker through.

In the world of photography, Kowa is very good stuff! For years Meopta has also been highly regarded for their great cameras.....(which they don't make anymore.)     --Ed

thanks for the info, I have been   other sites that say the same thing, the clarity of these things are excellent. I'd have to say that they are the best freebie that someone has given me
