TRADEMARKED LOGOS

The true value of an on line binoculars museum concept is the ability to gift information to everybody everywhere. A pioneer of posting binoculars and optics information on the internet was researcher Peter Abrahams, on his website Europa, and I probably used the information that he posted (especially JB codes) literally 1,200 plus times in doing my own research. His gifting to everyone of that research information certainly influenced my own thinking. The information he presented and which everybody relied on for even the most cursory research into Japanese binoculars was the lists of Japanese JB and JE manufacturer codes marked on Japanese binoculars for many decades. Sadly Peter Abrahams has passed away, but I am exceptionally pleased to have the permission of his daughter Katie Abrahams in making this information again easily accessible to everybody everywhere, and to have the privilege of promoting the tradition of facilitating this type of open optics research data.

Binoculars J markings

L

The marking is actually “JL” (Japan light machinery) plus a “B” for the binoculars assembling manufacturer or an “E” for the manufacturer of the frame/body (metalwork), and a number representing the manufacturer identity.
