*Good for package decor/display only. The goggles are old dried out and will crack and crumble very easily, but hold up well when left in package and not opened* These were originally intended for eye protection from gases and chemical sprays used by the enemy during WWII. However, as shown in the enlarged picture, Gen. Rommel used them for sand and wind protection during his failed desert operations in Africa. He probably acquired a cache of them through abandoned US supply camps. Also, check out the 1947 dated Cheerios ad on enlarged picture. There was such a surplus of the eyeshields, they were actually offering them free when you bought 2 boxes of cereal. An early and rare joint venture of the military and a famous cereal company. Ours come 4 to original cardboard pack (2 clear, 2 dark). Dated 1944. Unfortunately, the Cheerios offer has expired, but you can get yours now for $4.95 per pack of 4 dried and cracking eyeshields.
