Original British WWII RAF Fighter Pilot MK IVB Battle of Britain Spitfire Goggles

Regular price $495.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Pair Available. Excellent condition fantastic MK IV series (specifically MK IVB) goggles and were manufactured by Levers Optical Co. Ltd.  Stores Ref. 22c/167 (Goggles), 22c/113 (Screen, Anti-Glare). Manufactured with a black painted pressed brass frame incorporating hinged lens holders. With this pattern the lenses fit directly into the goggle frames without the need for sub-frames around them. The goggle frame is in excellent condition with very little paint loss or rubbing. The leather nose-piece and chamois backing are both in excellent condition but the rubber face pads have hardened with age (very typical). Fortunately they do still retain some shape and haven't deteriorated as much as most.

All strap components are excellent, the leather closure strap has clear Air Ministry markings that read:
AM MK IVB 22C/167
The clear lenses are excellent. Finally there is the anti-glare screen, commonly known as the flip shield with the short enclosed type spring mechanism.The shield has some very minor scratches and scuffs but overall excellent condition and fully functional movement and locking capability.
Overall this is an excellent set of rare Royal Air Force WWII flying goggles. Ideal for a Battle of Britain display!
