50 Years Later
The sunglasses are from American Optical. While in the Air Force, these were available to those on flight status.
“The Original Pilot Sunglass® (Flight Goggle 58) has been a favorite of U.S. military pilots for more than 50 years.”
“Engineered to rigid military specifications and issued to millions of U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen since 1958.”
I can’t recall how I got my first pair (the pair on the right). Over the years, the lenses were altered….thus they were not usable.
Finally after, many years a new pair was purchased. The new ones are identical….though the original did have the “12KGF” (12 Karat Gold Frame) mark. All-in-all, a quality product made in Southbridge, MA.
