Description

71) An original 1940 dated card box containing 6 pairs of Anti-Dust & Anti-Gas Goggles. This is the early war pattern, later war went to a stiff card sleeve with only half the quantity supplied. The card box is in good order with minor wear. The original label is in place dating them to March 1940. The box is also maker marked and dated 1940. The closure flap is excellent, the 2 ears of card side internal flaps have come away from inside but are still with the box. these do not affect its look or use at all (see photos) the goggles are good but some of the paper is stuck to them. Inside is complete with 5 sets of goggles all of which are in their paper envelopes so one set is missing. One has been removed from its packaging at some time and as shown in the photos is in excellent order. The paper envelope it came from is in place and good with a few minor tears to the closure flap. A nice hard to find early war set.
