This particular helmet is dated 1964 with the removable glass part of the goggles being dated 1963. It is not know exactly how the flash protection worked. The glass part of the goggles are double paned glass with a air space in the middle. They are removable by pushing the silver knobs one each side. The label states the serial number is 789.
