I have never found documentation defining the background of Marbo brand use on binoculars. A quantity of binoculars such as my smaller binoculars are marked with a Marbo Hoya logo, and it is possible Marbo could be a non trademarked brand of Hoya Optical Co Ltd., but this is speculative . My smaller Marbo 7x18 binoculars post date the US occupation period, but predate JB codes, so they date 1951-Nov 1959. They are marked as assembled by TOA /Toa Optical Co., Ltd. (Toa Kōgaku Kōgyō Kabushiki-geisha )( 東亜光学株式会社 ) of Japan . My larger Marbo 7x50 binoculars were assembled by JB198/ Taishin Kogyo Co Ltd. Of Japan, with the body made by JE18 / Tokyo Kogaku Kikai Co Ltd. of Japan

I have never found documentation defining the background of Atlas brand use on binoculars. My smaller Atlas 10x20 binoculars were assembled by JB5/ JB5/ Meiji Seiko Co. Ltd. 明治精工株式会社 of Japan , with frame by JE50/ Tanaka Koki Seisakujo. Inc. of Japan. They also carry the MSC logo. My larger Atlas 7x50 binoculars were assembled by JB127/ Koei Seiki Co. Ltd.

I have never found any documentation defining the background of Elko brand use on binoculars. My smaller 7x18 Elko Prismatics binoculars and my larger Elko Prismatics both post date the US occupation period, but predate JB codes, so date 1952 to Nov. 1959.
