My grandpa left me a pair of Zeiss Telact 8x24? (it doesn't say on the body) of 1914 vintage and I had them cleaned and de-fungued for $33. The picture is sharp - I can see .30 cal bullet holes at 150 meters(165 yds) - but they don`t seem to have any lens treatment at all. What use would you recomend  -if any - for these?

Obviously, you could use them to look at bullet holes at 150 yards. Or you could sell them to a collector, or you could build an "antiques corner" by the fire place.

Herr Smakula of Zeiss invented the lenstreatment in 1935 so obviusly they wont have any treatment.

You can use it for any kind of day use, I enjoy using antiqu optics and some of them have features that noone makes today.
