"That's right, Ice... Man

... I am dangerous." Smooth pair of late WWII B&L aviators on eBay. There is a nice little history lesson on the pedigree of these specs on the auction page. They went for $73.00. Not a horrible price, although there are a decent selection of WWII B&Ls on eBay right now. Made for the Pacific Theater, both American Optical and B&L "stole" the design from Persol, and made these for the US Armed Forces. All's fair in love and war.
