RAF MK.IVB Flying Goggles, Flipshield, Boxed

Code: SOLD-818

SOLD
Stores Ref. 22c/167 (Goggles), 22c/113 (Screen, Anti-Glare). The frame is in excellent original condition with no damage and virtually no paint loss whatsoever. This pair has the less commonly found satin brown paint finish. The nosepiece leather is in excellent condition as is the chamois backing bar light soiling. As is often the case, the rubber face pads have hardened and perished. They are not sticky and modern replacements are available should the buyer want to change them. The fitted clear lenses look pretty good but do have some relatively minor delamination. The large sprung strap loops are excellent and the leather strap section is very good with clear Air Ministry markings and reference numbers etc. The cloth covered strap springs appear to have deformed slightly and there has been some transfer of rubber from the perished pads. The flipshield, or more correctly 'Screen, Anti-Glare' is fitted with the small concealed type spring mechanism - all in very good condition. Complete with the original box of issue. Although nicely labelled this is rather damaged with loss of lid and damage to one side. Overall this is a very good pair of goggles in a tatty box. Stock code G17244.
