RAF MK.VII Flying Goggles & Anti-Glare Shield


Code: G18365

Stores Ref. 22c/827. The frame is generally in very good/sound condition with relatively minor paint loss/chipping.    Fitted with white painted nuts normally associated with goggles having prescription lenses.  The leather surround is very good and the backing chamois quite clean.  The owner's number and name can be seen but are indistinct.  Unusually the internal padding is still soft/pliable. Good nosepiece leather. The clear lenses look good but do have a few small chips and light delamination marking. Please note that they are standard lenses, not prescriptive.   The webbing strap is a little faded and soiled but does retain a decent level of  elastication and the metal componants are largely free of rust and verdigris.  

These also comes with the extremely rare and sought after perspex 'flipshield', or more correctly, 'Screen, anti-glare', stores ref. 22c/836. This has minor scuffs/scratches and the metal attachment clip has surface corrosion.   A very good pair of goggles suitable for RAF & AAF displays.  Stock code G18365.
