    Default Luftwaffe Goggles

    Here is an original pair of Luftwaffe goggles from WWII marked "Flieger - Splitterschutsbrillen mit Ultrasin Gläsern "A"

    They are in very fine condition. I doubt they have ever been used. Not a scratch on the glass and not a crack in the frame. The elastic ofcourse has a little give after decades in the box

    That's very nice! Box is great! I have two pairs of motorcycle googles, but without box.

    If you have any WH motorcycle parts or motorcycle related items for sale, please let me know.

    A general word of warning here about this style of goggles. They are now expertly copied.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade.

    *sigh* I guess there are copies of almost everything related to WWII.

    What a minefield.

    About the goggles posted above: As they have been in my family since WWII (as a kid I remember trying them on), the goggles are among the few things that I am 100% sure are not fake.

    That is really nice that these have some provenance with them. They are a sought after set with collectors of flight gear.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello,
    I do have very little knowledge concerning these pilot goggles...but when they come in such good condition with a certified provenance, i guess they are the icing on the cake for any Luftwaffe pilot collector.
    thanks for sharing these goggles.
    thanks
