These binoculars have a distinctive dark red anti-reflective coating.
The Carl Zeiss anti-reflective coatings of World War II were usually dark blue to almost purple in color.
The dark red (sometimes more orange colored) coating appears to be found only on a small series of binoculars made later in the war.
The general idea among collectors is that this was carried out as a test by Zeiss.
