Stores Ref. 22c/167. The frame is in excellent original condition with no damage and little paint loss or rubbing (chipped area near bridge - see photo). Very dark brown satin finish. The nosepiece leather is in good conditionexcellent as is the backing chamois bar average soiling. Very unusually the rubber pads are all good - they retain decent shape and are still flexible. Clear lenses are good but have signs of edge delamination. Strap components very good although the binding on one of the large \'loops\' may have been repaired. All the strap springs are complete/VG. Clearly A.M. marked. The flipshield is fitted with the large exposed spring mechanism - all in very good condition (one of the flipshield retaining bolts is missing - it is in the box but has no nut. Should be easy to source a replacement). Complete with fully stamped original box of issue. The box is soiled but in good shape and strong. Also comes with the inner card spares box containing a tube of “Everclear”, spanner and a full set of helmet plates and poppers for attaching to B or C-type helmets (all good) plus rivets and the leather forehead strip too. Also comes with a lightlydelaminated set of spare lenses. Overall this is an excellent set of goggles. Stock code G14840.
