Glasses, Flying Sun (Comfort Cable), AN6531, Type I. By Bausch & Lomb.  Classic AAF sunglasses, 'face-form', metal frame, cushionless aviators' sunglasses.  Nickel silver wire frames, wraparound 'comfort-cable' side-arms and green/grey tinted glass lenses.  Beige sweat brow pad and nose-rests.  Marked 'Bausch & Lomb' on the underside of the brow bar.  With original felt-lined aluminium case.  The glasses are in very good to excellent used condition with lightly tarnished/marked frames.  Remember this looks much worse in high resolution ultra close-up photographs.  Light marking/scratches on the lenses but nothing serious.  The hinges are good with no notable lateral or vertical play.  The B & L marked case is complete but has some scratches/soiling.  The original owner has neatly scratched his name into the base 'A.I. DENNEY, Tulsa'.  We had the same man's dog-tags but could find little information on him.  2nd Lt. Andrew Denney 0-711887 was born on 23rd August 1930 and died on 6th June 1987.  He is buried in the Knoxville National Cemetery.  Overall, a very good used pair of glasses.  Stock code H25013.
