RAF Mk.IVB flying goggles
Stores reference 22c/167. The frame is in reasonable condition, finished in the less common satin brown colour and has liitle paint loss. Unfortunately there is some distortion and the bridge piece has been replaced on the right side as viewed. The left side of the bridge is slightly bent and one of of the rivets is pulling through - this is all clearly visible in the photographs. The nosepiece leather and backing chamois are both good. As usual, the original rubber facepads are hard, crusty and mishaped - the upper left side is worst and the lower right retains a reasonable shape. Fitted with a very good pair of clear lenses. The large loops forming part of the strap are good and the sprung sections are good bar one spring each side which appear to be broken. The leather strap is good and has faint reference marks but the end is absent. No flipshield fitted. These have some issues but still display well. Fair used overall. Stock code G20196.
