A set of 11 wooden eyepiece mounts and adapters, some incomplete, and all without lenses. Of these 11 pieces, one mount has a large thread, four a medium thread, and two a small thread, two are cocus wood adapters each with a large thread, one is made of light wood with a medium thread, and one is a threadless mount for a lens (probably not meant for an eyepiece) of light wood. Once included in this set though no longer was a small cocus wood eyepiece mount, with an internal thread and pitch adhering to it. All pieces have many dents and scratches.
