You are bidding on a NICE set of WW2 US Army Air Force Variable Density Air Gunner Goggles!  These were used by most crew members on the B-25, B-26, B-17, B-29. and others!

Variable density goggles were used by U.S. aerial gunners and anti-aircraft gunners in World War II. They were equipped with a turning dial on the front allowing the pilot to alter the tint of the lens enabling them to see tracer rounds and not be easily blinded.

Made of aluminum and rubber, this is a VERY NICE set!  In unused condition, they do show some slight marks and wear throughout…but are VERY solid otherwise!  Lenses are a bit dirty from storage.  The black rubber face pad is EXCELLENT with no breaks or cracks (though some slight deformation as they have been sitting in the box for 80 years).  Made by the American Optical Company they come complete in the original box!  Box is in excellent condition, however some of the label is missing.  I have shown them in use in the last images.  Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- PAYMENT —————–

 Payment should be made within 7 business days at the end of the auction unless buyer contacts me for other arrangements. I accept all forms of payment.


 ——————- SHIPPING —————– 

My goal is to ship within 7 days from auction end. However, depending on circumstances, it may take up to an additional 1 week from receipt of confirmed payment. If you need it shipped sooner, please let me know and I will do our best to accommodate.

————— TERMS OF SALE ————– 

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.

——————– ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.

——————- COPYRIGHT —————– 

All pictures and descriptions used in my auctions under COPYRIGHT and I forbid the use of these photos and information in any manner such as paper or electronic (internet) publications or otherwise. Use is solely based on my authorization only.
