My father uses this to do his reading since his eyesight is poor. This is a great help.
Both items are beautiful functional works of art. Quality glass lens appears to me as truly 3X. Nicely finished brass. I'm delighted to have found this item at such a reasonable price at ADORAMA, it's twice the price at some other sites. I finally can part with my old cheap junk scratched plastic & aluminum magnifier.
On closer examination, it appears to me that the magnification is 1.5X, possible 2X, but I don't think it's 3X. I determined this by placing a measuring stick on top of the glass and then examining another measuring stick through the glass, the magnified image of 1 inch measures 1.5 - 2 inches, not three. Perhaps the method I used is not that used to establish specifications. HOWEVER, I'm still very satisfied with both items.
Made to last a life time.
