Hello everyone,

I currently have the following scopes in out of the box condition
Hensoldt ZF 10x42 (ZF 500)
Kahles ZF69-6x42
Kahles Helia-Super 4 s2 
Kahles Helia-Super 8 s2

I have searched pretty extensively for how much these optics would go for but only have a ballpark idea. Any advice would be nice. 

I'm an optics tech with the US Marines and inspected their condition; they were very well kept . My experience is with Trijicon, Aimpoint, and EO Tech but any advice would be great.

The Kahles ZF69 is a "collectible", so price depends on the buyer.  I'm guessing the $1500 minimum range.  The others, I can't help you.  I have a ZF84 with 7.62x51 BDC.  LOVE IT.

Not sure on the ZFs, but the Helia-Super scopes are pretty old.  I would think you could get a couple hundred for them each.  Check eBay and Gunbroker to see what some of the other models have gone for.
 
Hope this helps.

A fellow Marine, always nice to welcome another Devil Dog.

I have no idea on the scopes, but SWFA can probably help, I'd call and ask if they know anything about them.
