    Carl Zeiss Jena Prismatic MG sight - Turkish markings?

    Anyone seen one of these before? I have not. From the hand-engraved script markings I know is very early, well before WWI

    Not certain it's for MGs, but certainly looks like it. 5x magnification. The FoV marking is illegible so far.

    It does not have the normal inverted V reticle nor any range adjustment dial that is normal for the ZF12 MG prismatic sights. I think it may be an angle of sight instrument for an artillery piece where the whole sight mounting moves against a scale.
