French Air Force issue Cebe 4000 Flying Goggles
An increasingly rare set of 1940 dated goggles with the frame, hinge, lenses are all being in great condition and no issues. The double elastic back strap is complete as shown and nice to see the second set which often get lost on this pattern. The clips for attaching to the frame are perfect and full working order. The original curved lenses are fitted and again great condition. The rubber is generally good but a little age wear as shown but should not cause any issues for display. The leather face pad is nice clean condition and of course helps the integrity of the rubber outer. The original issue box is a further bonus and is fully stamped with full details as well as a May 1940 date so these could well have served during the Battle of France and with the Free French during the battle of Britain. The top strap is missing from the box however. The set is completed by the instruction sheets but these are copies taken from an original. This a is only the second set of Cebe 4000 we have had in the last 10 years so to describe them as scarce is no understatement!
