    Sherman tank periscope

    I have a model 6 US Sherman tank periscope. It is in good condition with intact lenses.
    I don't have any info. on it and would like to know if it is desirable and what would be a good asking price. Please excuse me if this is the wrong site to be asking these questions. Thanks.

    Benny,
    I have several and I paid £40 each for them and use them with security cameras to view over obstructions such as walls into compounds. Hope that helps, sadly not fetching as much as people would imagine.
    Saw a current in service MOD surplus tank sight go on an auctions site recently for £150 so you can see not much to be made even though its WW2.

    They are one of those things that may not have a great financial value but have value as an interesting "curio".
