The invoice for a 10x Unertl USMC sniper scope from Unertl. The optic was purchased in 1984. Check out that price. The idea of paying 1,097.42 dollars for an optic in 1984 would be met with bug eye stares or loud laughter from the vast majority of people.
The purchased optic mounted on its home. The plywood box below is what John Unertl shipped his optics in. The cardboard box on top of it is what the scope was in and placed in the wooden box.
Above are the tools that came with the optic for adjusting the objective lens. Those flat pieces of metal went into the objective end. The wrenches are for the adjustment turret for elevation.
