Original WW2 RAF MK VIII Anti Glare Spectacles Sunglasses
An original pair of RAF MK VIII Sunglasses dating from the Second World War.
This pattern of spectacles was introduced during the middle of WW2 and saw wide-spread issue throughout the rest of the conflict.
The glasses are the classic 'aviator' shape and feature chrome plated rims and arms with sprung wrap-around ear pieces. They have green tinted lenses of a very high quality which are still very clear and usable today. The inside of one arm bears the designation 'MKVIII' as well as the RAF stores code of 22c / 961. The Air Ministry 'A.M' proceeds this information whilst the War Department broad arrow can be found above it.
The glasses are in good used condition with some signs of age and use. The metalwork shows some signs of tarnishing and Verdigris whilst the lenses appear to have survived well and are clear and usable. It is important to remember that these are a pair of pre-owned, vintage sunglasses which have been used previously and therefore may have issues commensurate with age.
A good pair of highly collectable sunglasses which would make a good addition to any aviation collection!
