One lens is nearly perfect, while examining with a MAGNIFYING GLASS, I found just a couple of tiny, hairline surface scuffs and a few little specks. When looking with the naked eye, I cant see a single flaw, they are so smooth and perfect that it looks like the glass is still liquid - nice. The other lens has an area near the hinge that has five small nicks and a small, two millimeter scratch. There are also four other tiny, two millimeter scratches in other random places and there is more general surface wear compared to the other lens, but all told that is pretty much the culmination of flaws, which is far less than the pair of glasses Im wearing right now. The other thing that should be mentioned is that these fabulous lenses are a lighter green than you typically find with these goggles, which is gorgeous and also allows you to wear these goggles in a lot more environments than the more common dark green lenses. This shade of green is far less common, and it is extremely difficult to find these lenses in even moderately good condition. So this is a really rare find that results in a visually stunning and extremely versatile pair of goggles. Grab em up before theyre gone! FRAMES: The frames are what I would call perfection! They are literally like new. Might there be a scuff or two here or there? Sure, but these goggles are almost one hundred years old, and overall these frames look like they just came off the shelf. Also, they are structurally perfect, with no pitting, discoloration, tarnish - just the original gleaming silver. Again, nothing to detract from the original beauty and quality of these fine frames. A rare bird indeed. SIDE SHIELDS: Okay, heres the deal: the leather side shields and the leather covering the nose bridge is, unbelievably, like brand new. Seriously, it is stiff and strong as though this pair were just made, but not stiff and dry and cracking. Its stiff like it hasnt been broken-in. It still feels very pliable, and the only creases are the same creases that a new pair would have from being in the box. These side shields have brass rivets where they are attached to the frames and they are perforated for breath-ability. They are also embossed with the Willson name and the good ol Made In U.S.A. Im not sure how tanning is done, but as with every pair of leather side shields Ive ever handled, one side is slightly thicker than the other, but both are unreal. I couldnt find a single flaw in the left side shield, the right, or the center nose bridge piece. For this reason alone, this pair of goggles is very special. EARPIECES - ARMS: The earpieces are in excellent condition. They are straight, extremely strong, and have a CLEAR protective coating (not white) for added comfort and durability. The clear coating does show some of the dirt/dust accumulation of the past hundred years underneath. Thats to be expected. When they fold out, the hinges are tight and hold the arms in place. The tips of the earpieces show a coiled ear wire that is clean and brand new looking, with a bead of metal at the end to keep the protective coating from sliding off the ends of the earpieces. A true testament to quality construction. MEASUREMENTS: The goggles measure approximately 5-1/2 inches (140mm) wide from hinge-to-hinge and the lenses measure approximately 2-1/4 inches (54mm) high, including the frames - please consider the dimensions when selecting any pair of goggles, and if
