RAF Mk.VII flying goggles
Stores reference 22c/827. The frame is in reasonable condition, a little distorted at each side but with relatively minor paint loss/chipping. The flipshield mounting bar has been cut-down/removed which seems to have been quite a common period modification. Both frame nuts are non-period replacements. The leather surround is rather flattened/solid and the backing chamois has a more chromed-like finish through continued use. The nosepiece leather remains pliable. Fitted with clear glass lenses that display quite well despite delamination marking. The webbing strap is heavily soiled and somewhat twisted. Whilst it lacks elastication the metal componants are largely free of rust and verdigris. A well used pair of goggles suitable for both RAF and USAAF displays. Stock code G21284.
