Default Luftwaffe Goggles and Case Opinion Request

The set of goggles and case came w/ a small lot of other Luftwaffe items. I am curious to see if these are period Luft goggles, or not.

All help is appreciated!

Here is the case. The goggles fit perfectly inside.

They look good to me, I have a couple of pairs of these. Tin is fine, as well as goggles.

Guys -

Thanks for the info.

Here is photo of an EK2 upgraded to RK. Note the straps the would go around the wearer's neck. Identical material and hardware to what is found on these goggles. This RK came out of a POW camp in France.

Again, thanks.
