General close-up magnifying

Notes: "The Bausch & Lomb Hastings Triplet is the gold standard of pocket magnifiers. The image is beautifully sharp and clear. This is a small 10x, with a 15 mm diameter lens and 14 mm clear aperture. Opened up it is still less than 2 (5 cm) long. You would normally associate this size with a 20x magnifier, but this one is a more useful 10x. The chrome-plated case has a loop for attaching it to a neck chain. It is in excellent condition. This particular magnifier was made in the USA, before all B&L production moved to Japan."
