It is, as you see, clearly marked 30X21.

True, the lens is 21mm diameter.

False, there is no way this is 30X magnification.

It's 10X magnification.

This is the one you see in every antiques fair and street market. This is one of our best sellers!

If you are buying a true 30X for £35.00 , add one of these to your order just for fun - you will be amazed!

This is a very low value item. We have a minimum order charge of 7.50 (6.25 + VAT). Is this the only item you require? You may wish to buy more than one, or add some other items to the order.

{Is it 30X or 10X?}

There is no way this is 30X magnification, it's 10X magnification.

How do I know?

Three reasons.

Firstly, I'm an expert, I can seeit's not 30X.

Secondly, this is not a matter of opinion, it can be measured, see see our conversion chart.

Thirdly, I import these from the manufacturers (they come in packs of 480) - the last time I ordered the 10X they said (I paraphrase), "It will take us six weeks to make the 10X because our machines are set up to print '30X' on these, but if you want them marked '30X' then we can make them in two weeks.'
