Very good condition and sights are clear.
In orginal wooden box with leather strap (key for box is missing) one brass coachman fastener attahed to box to retain leather strap other is inside the box.

The Binocular Gunsight isn't covered in the model guide, but it will be part of the serial number normal sequence. 

From:- Ross binoculars - model guide

For post-war binoculars the following guide will help:

125000 to 133000 - 1945 to 1950
