I have not been able to determine the identity of C.E.Z., but suspect it to be a Japanese exporter or U.S. importer in the 1950’s. My smaller 6x15 C.E.Z binoculars post date the US occupation period but predate JB codes, so date to 1951 to Nov. 1959 and are maker marked AOCo (Asahi Optical Co) of Japan, and carry AOCo’s trade marked Jupiter model name. My larger C-E-Z 7x50 binoculars post date the US occupation period but predate JB codes, so date to 1951 to Nov. 1959.

I have not been able to identify the background of Super Zenith brand use on binoculars, though it is multi national and over a long period of time. My smaller Super Zenith 10x20 binoculars were assembled by JB231/ Tochihara Optical Co ( 栃原光学株式会社) of Japan. My larger Super Zenith 16x50 binoculars post date JB codes, are Japanese made, but with silk screen markings on plastic cover panels that probably date them to the 1990’s or newer. The larger binoculars carry a small star logo (probably an exporter logo).
