Here's an interesting set of accessory head light lenses. Looks like they would throw the light down in front of you to avoid glare for the oncomming traffic.

Hi All
It’s interesting that Jay’s lenses are marked with a patent date
of December 8th 1914, which did not include the “eye lids”.
They show up on a later patent issued June 8th 1920.
Both patents here . . .
Patent number: 1119848
Filing date: Apr 18, 1910
Issue date: Dec 8, 1914

Patent number: 1342744
Filing date: Feb 23, 1917
Issue date: Jun 8, 1920

Another fluted or refractive type lens patent issued
in that time period here . . .
Patent number: 1276240
Filing date: Dec 23, 1914
Issue date: Aug 20, 1918

Jay; I have a set in my truck, and I'm sure the green eyebrow is so we don't blind low flying aircraft.

Sincerely

Jim Weir

I have a green eye brow set on my 26 green touring car. Since I installed them not one person has complained about me blinding them at night. A great safety accessory, plus they look cool:-)
