RAF Mk.VIII flying spectacles, cased


Code: G22875

By HCO.  Stores reference 22c/961.  Standard WW2 issue MK.VIII anti-glare spectacles/sunglasses.  Grey-green tinted lenses set within steel wire frames with side-arms featuring 'wrap-around' ear pieces.  The frames are generally in very good condition bar soiling and light verdigris deposits.  Please note that close up photographs makes this appear worse than it really is!  This pair has minimal vertical and lateral play in the hinges and the lenses are very good.  War department broad arrow and reference numbers stamped into sidearms.  The original hard case is a little  soiled and marked up with the slightly later reference code for these glasses (22c/1072).  A very good used pair.   Stock code G22875.
