Introduced in 1944 these third pattern 'anti-splinter' goggles have moulded black plastic frames that hinge at the nose.  They are fitted with small convex tinted glass lenses (type D) designed to provide some protection from flying shrapnel debris.  The frame is in excellent condition bar normal wear and is marked 'NiGuRa' (Nitsche and Gunther, Rathenow).  No size markings.  Both tinted lenses have light scratches only.  The strap retainers have minor surface pitting/verdigris but the strap itself is very stretched and has lost all of the original elasticty.  A good '+'  used pair.  Stock code G24852.
