    Default Luftwaffe Pilot Goggles with Tin

    Picked this up today.

    A nice set of Pilot goggles with Tin and replacement lenses.

    Only flaw is that two of the lenses have cracks but otherwise appear to be unworn. Elastic strap is still in great shap.

    They are marked FD 43.

    Any info on these? Maker?

    Thanks and Regards,

    Michael

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Excellent feedback Timothy. Thanks!

    Guess I'll put them on my NSKK motorcycle crash helmet now! Gotta love it when you have options!

    So true, right? Smart women. But at least they understand and support our passion.

    Michael...I have a pair of these as well and very late to replying to you here. They are close to the 306 model usually worn by pilots. The pilot model 306 had two screws in front. Timothy is spot on that this model has only one screw. They are all purpose goggles for motorcycle but I have seen Luftwaffe aviator's in photos wearing this variation with the one screw as well.

    So next time you ride your Harley and Take a trip in your private jet you will be all set with these goggles my brutha!

    Thanks Rossi!

    Unfortunately no private jet yet and no Harley but I do ride a Royal Enfield C5 Military.

    It tops out and shudders like crazy at 65 mph but it is eye catching
