The binoculars appear in a pivotal scene in the film

The auction house explains: "This pair of Bausch & Lomb binoculars played its own very special role in the scene where Bond prevents Auric Goldfinger (Gert Fröbe) from winning a rigged game of gin rummy by distracting his assistant Jill Masterson (Shirley Eaton).

"Masterson uses the binoculars to spy on Goldfinger's opponent from the hotel balcony and then relays the information to her employer by radio."
