Description

54) A very nice pair of original mid war RAF MKVIII flying goggles and issue box. This is a pretty scarce pair of 1st pattern MK8 goggles with rectangular bar nose hinge. these were very short lived as the hinges were found to break easily hence being replaced with the standard x shape nose piece. The goggles are excellent and have only seen little use. All RAF blue paintwork is perfect, the original lenses are good and the leather is all like new with nice clear AM markings to the bridge of the nose. The inside chamois shows minor dirt and wear but in good order. The head strap shows minor dirt but is in nice order. The spare tinted lenses are dusty but seem pretty good. The anti-dim tin is good with minor rust to the outside base (see photos) The box is the correct original and in good order with just minor marks and edge wear.
