"Pilots, Man Your Planes!"   
                                         WWII U.S. Naval Aviation Collector's Guide                                                                              
These aviation classics are considered, by some, to be the ultimate metal frame goggle of the Second World War era and are a staple item in the collector realm today. Combining features previously found in the pre-war vintage Army Air Corps' B-7 and Navy's MK-II goggles, the AN-6530, although relatively short lived, was an example of state-of-the-art eye protection technology in 1943.

The many variations to be found are conducive to a sub-collection featuring the various combinations of lens, strap and pad color as well as hardware, cushion and frame types. We will attempt to catalog and illustrate them for you here and make note of a few of our observations that have not be discussed in print before.
