RAF Mk.VIII flying goggles

Code: G24300

£85.00 Approx $107.73, €99.53
 

Stores reference 22c/930.  The frames are very good with relatively minor rubbing on exposed points.  The leather surround is generally very good but the suede backing is rather soiled and rubbed.  The goggles are fitted with a pair of clear lenses that have delamination marks and a crack.  The strap is worn, faded and stretched, retaining little elasticity and the metal components have surface corrosion.  A reasonable used pair.  Stock code G24300.
NB The frames have non-rolled edges suggesting late war or early postwar manufacture.
