Price: $600.00
Shipping Weight: 14.00 ounces
 
 
Quantity:
 

SUBJECT: This is a rare set of pilot (could have also been Navy or Marine Corps) goggles by American Optical Company in its original case. The top of the case reads AVIATION GOGGLES AMERICAN OPTICAL COMPANY with the company’s winged logo. The bendable bridge of the goggles is in the shape of two interlocking wings.

VINTAGE: Circa 1930s.

SIZE: Approximately 2-7/8” height and 7-7/8” width and 3-11/16” depth (case).

CONSTRUCTION/MATERIALS: Glass lenses, nickel-plated brass hardware, foam rubber seals, cotton strap; velvet-lined leather-wrapped box.

ATTACHMENT: Cotton strap and sliding buckle on goggles; snap on case.

MARKINGS: Each lens reads AO and either L or R; original manufacturer label enclosed.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Army Air Forces collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. STORE VBEJX00 LFJJX7/10

CONDITION: 6+ (Fine-Very Fine): The hinging edge of the case has entirely separated, so case is opened not by unsnapping the front but by just lifting the cover from the back. Goggles show some moderate wear and small spots of tarnish but are overall well-preserved.

GUARANTEE: As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
