Seller Just send me this one. Looks original now.
Finally found 58mm mirror at real price, maybe to good to be true . The "Ray Ban" still looks big on upper side. The " B&L Ray Ban xx yy" = 90s but no logo on lenses. What do you think ? If its a fake, its a nice one.

I bought this one used on ebay in 2003 or so and like to sell it now. However, I'm not sure if it's fake as I can't find any size specifation on the frame.

Hi all I'm hoping somebody could tell me if these are genuine or not.
Belonged to my late grandfather, and I'm pretty sure they were bough on holiday sometime in the 70s but I could be wrong.

Any info would be much appreciated

From the pics you provided, the stamped letters and numbers on top of the crossbar looks authentic.

They look to be a first edition Caribbean Ray-Ban by Bausch & Lomb from the 1960s...Very nice!

Thanks for the reply
There's no numbers I can see, but the timeline sounds about right,
Price wise any idea, they aren't for sale mind. they've been locked away in the safe the past few years.

Unfortunately there's a slight crack on the frame but I was hoping to get them repaired and polished up, would it be worth it.

Regarding the RB-50 lens, I see two different styles of RB50 logo, one like the normal "50", one like a double lined "50".

Are there any differences between the two set of lenses? Thanks.

I have a pairof Aviators and the only markings on the frame I can find are 18k and the nose pieces have BL stamped in them. The lenses have BL along with the white Ray Ban markings, are they fake or real vintage ?

Condition is everything. Even if you have them repaired, you are dealing with a 50+ year old nylon material, they will never be the same.

Hard to put a number on the value without personally inspecting them.

As far as we know, the "double lined" ones were the first generation, the others came later.

hi look under the bridge (the large metal part between both lenses). im rather sure it will say B&L RAY-BAN 58[]14 (or maybe 62[]14, but they look like 58 to me. I still find it damn to determine size by just a picture)

Anyway, yes they look very authentic. B15 TGM lens in black chrome large metal frame, nice combination if you ask me.

What condition are they?

Am I right to assume that the first gen. is more desirable, so to speak?
