Description

A fine, miniature Coddington lens in ivory with a flawless solid lens and spectacular machining. Considering the entire assembly is only 5 cm.

Flawless optics and the  lens has one edge flattenned to accompodate the handle which holds the lens internally in it’s two part housing. The magnification is an estimated 10X with a focal length of only a few mm.
