Does anyone know for sure and have an idea of what its worth> There is no liquid in the level but all the optics are good and all the adjustments work great.

Markings look Eastern Block to me, sir. I was a Mortar Maggot, 81mm, 4.2in and 120mm for 10yrs.

Looks like a ChiCom manufactured version of an Eastern Block indirect fire sight going by the character after the number.

That is not the US 75mm pack howitzer sight. 100% positive this information is true. I have had the proper M1 sight, and that is not it.

This is an "aiming scope" used to survey in a guns position.
Not for Pack 75mm howitzer .

You will get an idea of pricing if you go to
ebay and search:"aiming circle , aiming scope
or artillery sight".

They do show up on ebay regularly, and they fail to get any bids when started between $100-$200.
