    Honestly, loads of fakes are stamped. I can guaranteed if you saw a clear picture of the stamping, the quality won’t be as good as it should be. But for me, the easiest way I can tell this pair aren’t right is the photo of the Ray Ban logo. It’s not the right angle, curvature, spacing and the...

    Yeah, sorry to disappoint. Where abouts in the UK are you? I’m sure I could sort you a real pair.

    Yeah, as mentioned they are fine. Frame W Germany is a correct model, made under license in Germany, so will often see them with LIC stamped too. Nice pair, a little more desirable to some than a standard pair, but not much.

    Sorry, definitely not real. They’re a very common fake. The Chromax case is fake, should have stitching along the top inside, and the glasses aren’t real. They’re probably the most common fake combination around these days. Sorry about that!

    Yeah i’d Say most likely RB3. Lovely pair, and actually a really great lens. Very enjoyable to wear.

    That’s good, they are a lovely little pair and tbh 52mm pretty much dropped off the radar after this era. I think you’ll have to get yourself a 58mm pair, I may even have a pair if you’re interested ;) So, RB2, is much rarer in DGM and much lighter, i’ll post some pictures shortly to show the...

    Clarke, yes same sort of era, 1940-50s. Your are either rb2 dgm, or rb3 dgm, can’t quite tell from the photos. Unfortunately they’re 52mm which isn’t as popular or as valuable as 58mm models. The lenses make them a bit more desirable though, probably 150ish.

    So the shooters above, Ryan, they are early, 1940s pair of shooters, or shooting glass as they were originally called. RB2, not 1 as mentioned earlier. They are very popular in America and places like Malaysia/Thailand. Value is difficult, all depends on condition, and some models within that...

    They’re RX frames, for prescription lenses.

    Vintage Ray Ban Expert

    Basically, exactly as you suspect. Some had cable, some not, was a choice you could make. Cable sometimes are more desirable, especially if in good condition. The Ray Ban stamp on top, again, you’re pretty spot on. The dates are somewhat debatable, but the dates you gave are roughly correct...

    Very much authentic. These are the Cats 1000 with the 1987 anniversary RB50 lens. Nice little find.

    Vintage Ray Ban Expert

    Yeah in all honesty they’re pretty good fakes! But afraid fake none the less. No problem, feel free to upload some pics. I’m not musehead btw, he disappeared years ago.

    They look real enough to me. No worries. Value is hard really. What currency you looking?

    Vintage Ray Ban Expert

    Sorry buddy, they’re fake. Chromax aren’t G15 and aren’t changeable. They’re B20 and a constant lens. All the stamps of the frames are off, the etching is wrong, ear pieces, etc. Sorry about that.
