*The* original aviator - accept no substitutes. With original case embossed with a catchy advertising blurb from the era.

Marked: AO (very small stamp) | Amazing vintage condition - these are an antique, it's amazing how they have survived, a testament to the excellent manufacture. Collectible!

The case is in good, functional condition - note that the leatherette layer on the face (where the snap is) is separated from the underlayer, but this is easily remedied with a spot of glue. I can do this if it's no matter of concern to the buyer.

About 5 and 1/8ths inches wide from hinge to hinge
1.75 inches frame height (frame front, measured at about the center of the lens, vertically)
total length of side piece is about 5.5 inches total (need to double check this
Non-prescription lenses. Some surface wear, please see pics. Hinges are good, frames are sound.

Wearer of these frames instantly attains celebrity.
