    Can't beat free.
    I would let the lenses be as is. A moist towel is all I would do to it IMO.

    Just remember, some things are better left as they are. Never try to clean or enhance anything that doesn't need it. You could end up destroying 70 years of history by trying to return something to it's original state.
    You don't need to wear it or look through the lenses so they don't need any more than a wipe with a damp cloth as Eric suggests.

    Your task is to preserve history, not change it!

    Well done on a freebie though.
