Original ddx made tan binoculars. This one even still has the correct eyepieces with the groove which is found almost exclusively on tan binoculars. It almost looks like the tan paint was touched up at some point. The optics are quite clean, but I do not see the reticle, so perhaps these have been worked on and some internals have been replaced. Its a very nice looking pair of binoculars, great set for reenacting. Has an original strap.
