RAF MK.IVB Flying Goggles, Complete/Boxed
Stores Ref. 22c/167 (Goggles), 22c/113 (Screen, Anti-Glare). The frame is in excellent original condition with some surface marks but no damage and virtually no paint loss whatsoever. This pair is finished with the less common satin brown paint finish. The nosepiece leather & chamois backing are both in excellent condition and remarkably, even the original rubber face pads retain excellent shape and flexibility. This is almost unheard of. The clear glass lenses appear excellent as are the strap components - all the strap springs are complete/excellent. Clearly A.M. marked with reference numbers etc. The flipshield, or more correctly 'Screen, Anti-Glare' is fitted with the small enclosed type spring mechanism - all in excellent condition. Complete with the original box of issue which is soiled but in good condition. Paper labels inside the lid list the contents, all of which are included although the spares 'wallet' has been subsituted as usual with a small card box. This containing a tube of “Everclear”, frame key/spanner and a full set of helmet plates and poppers. These could be attached to B or C-type helmets using the copper rivets also included. Finally there is the leather/chamois forehead protection strip. An excellent set of goggles complete with all accessories bar spare lenses. One of the finest pairs we've had for a while.
