A fine, miniature Coddington lens in bone with a flawless solid lens and spectacular machining. Considering the entire assembly is only 5 cm. (2 inches) long, the skill and patience involved in its production is amazing. Finely engine lathe turned, ornate handle. Fine Whitworth threads to all components including the handle. 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.
