Response to Halcyon 70th Anniversary RAF Goggles

These look amazing! The feel is just right. I'm tempted to buy a pair!
These would be very good for reenactment, knowing you wouldn't wear out an original pair!

As for the price; you can follow this auction and see what it does:
http://cgi.ebay.com/WW11-RAF-FLYING-GOGGLES-BOX-/230523451778?pt=UK_Collectables_Militaria_LE&hash=item35ac44b982#ht_500wt_1154

In my view, prices for original like-new MkVIII's are around the 90 pound, often exceeding the 90 pounds. A new-boxed MkVIII for 60 pounds is in the past, IMHO. Certainly in the past on the net.
Normal goggles are 55 - 60 pounds so these replicas are not overly expensive, I don't think.

Good find!

Cheers, Toine
