RAF MK.VIII Flying Goggles, Boxed
Stores Ref. 22c/930. The frames are in very good condition showing little wear or paint chipping. However, there is minor distortion of the frame above the left lens (as worn), presumably the result of a minor bump. The leather surround is excellent and the suede backing very good with light even soiling. There is an indistinct reference stamp to the rear centre brow pad (see photo). The strap is quite clean, retains good elasticity and colour but does have minor surface corrosion on the metal componants. Fitted with tinted lenses that look good and are free from delamination. That said, the right lenses are cracked and the left are chipped at the 'angle' join. Complete with the original box of issue in excellent condition. This also contains a very good pair of spare clear lenses and a 1942 dated antidim tin/cloth. Very good + / exellent overall condition. Stock code G18305.
