Hey, I'm new to the forums and hope you guys could help me. My grandparents moved to Italy 2 years and decided they were not coming back. I was left with the task of organizing and cleaning everything in their apartment. I found this old vintage pair of binoculars. There a pair of Bushnell 7 x 35, below is a link to a pic. If anyone has any information about them it would be greatly appreciated. Attached is a photo. Thanks in advance!

They are older style Insta Focus binoculars that may have had partial multi-coating, depending on model year.

They won't fetch much if you are interested in value but they are serviceable.

I also made your link hot.

I figured they wouldn't be worth much, but they still work great!

I had a pair of Bushnells of about that vintage ----late 70s and early 80s....
 
No good......Not worth much.....I got headaches from hunting with them.  Now, some of the Older Bushnells from the 50s and 60s were excellent......but not the Insta-Focus. 
 
Sorry.   Have a yard sale.      Bucky

These look exactly like the pair my dad has and used before I bought him a better pair of binoculars.  They were not very good, even in their day.   I would say today they would be outclassed by even the lower cost models from major manufacturers.
