Civil War Era Tinted Sharpshooter's Glasses

This is an early tinted pair of sharpshooter's or eye glasses.  As you will note by its design, these are not your avg pair of mid-nineteenth century reading glasses with some tinted glass added.  The sides are adjustable and slide to accommodate different sized people.  At the end of each arm is a ring for attaching a lanyard or necklace to be carried about the neck.  With the extendable arms in the stowed position, they fold up in a nice compact arrangement.  The lenses are a light green tint.  We took a couple extra photos away from our usual blue backdrop in order to give a better idea of the true shade.  Lens have some light scratches.  The furniture is made of iron.  A nice pair of Civil War era shooting glasses.
