    Default RKKA WW2 Period Flight Goggles?

    Hello,
    I've been looking for an original pair of ww2 period RKKA flight or pilot goggles. I know from looking at period photos how an original pair is supposed to look, but it's difficult for me to tell if they are ww2 period or are early post war. These RKKA goggles have been offered for sale and I would like others opinions on whether they think they are ww2 period, or post ww2 goggles? Thanks in advance.

    These are relatively modern, IMO. I've seen these quite often
    at militaria shows - starting at $15..........

    IMO the goggle pics I posted are not modern, they are either ww2 or early post war. There is a difference. The ww2 period and early post war goggles have raised air vents on the upper sides. I will post a pic of a pair of modern Russian goggles dated 1985. They do not have the raised air vents. And the rubber is thinner, and strap is thinner and [ATTACH=CONFIG]467620]different.

    Certainly a difference in quality and construction from the first examples.
    The period photos would suggest that they are WWII types.........
