My first WW2 AN-6530 goggles... really nice.


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I bought an NAF-1092 helmet with ANBH1A receivers from a very helpful forum member last week and have been looking for a set of AN-6530 goggles go with the helmet.

I enquired about these nice original goggles and found that they had belonged to the seller's father, a 20 year Navy veteran.

 

They should look great with the 1029 helmet, hope you like them...

Cheers, John

Looks very nice! Show us the set please:)

I'll be very happy to post photos when the goggles and helmet arrive, here is the helmet, I think they will look pretty good as a set! A big thanks to the forum member who sold me the helmet for putting up with all my questions and everything!

 

cheers, John
