Up for auction is a great WWII pilots flying aviation leather hat, and goggles. The hat is made of soft glove leather with the makers name on both buttons: Chicago Glove & Mitten Co. 460 No. Halsted Street, Chicago. The hat is in very good shape. The leather is very soft, the stitching, strap, snap and buckle are in very good working order. The goggles have soft glove leather padding around the eyes, aluminum frames, and tinted glass lenses with one small tip cracked off in the very top center corner of the nose guard. The goggles have a cloth strap with the initials BB on the inside. The goggles are made by: Resistal, S&B New York, with the makers mark of a hammer breaking glass. Hope you would like to add this to your collection. Thank you for looking.
