i was was given a binoculars by a most generous person---my benefactor had purchased them new in feb 1993 ---she is 84 years old now and had tried, unsuccessfully, to use them for birding---her comment.... "i absolutely hate them" (spoken with true disdain)---she asked me if i wanted a look through them---to me they were outstanding and i grinned as i looked---her comment on my grin.... "you love them, take them"---i was overwhelmed  Embarrased  ---my question to you all is ---what do i have?---they are marked Zeiss Dialyt 10 X 40B,  West Germany---i was given the original box and all the paperwork

best regards        foster

If they are also marked T* P*, you have a binocular which is optically almost on par with the best available today.
 
If they are not marked P*, it means that you have an excellent glass which will serve you well for as long as you live, but it is slightly less bright and sharp compared to the best of today.
 
They are rain resistant, but don't submerge them.  
 
You can start cleaning her yard, trimming her trees, etc.

I have a pair in 7x42 which are just the T* . They are extremely bright. I was given mine as well and when going on a big hunt in Canada I thought I needed better optics. I bought a pair of Leica Ultravid BR 10X42 .
 
Needless to say the older Zeiss are brighter, the exit pupil is of course better but for 20+ years behind in technology I was suprised. However the Leica's do awesome with color, clarity at last possible light, and cause much less strain on my eyes while glassing for 15-20 mintues straight (which is the biggest reason I like them better). I am a novice at optics so take this as a layman's point of view...........you have an outstanding set of bino's IMO !!
