    So I just stumbled upon my father's old items, and I found this old Ray Ban Aviator. I have a problem though. I don't know if these are actually authentic or not. My father died in 2003. I tried to ask my mom about this, she first saw these glasses on their first date (early 1980s), but she has no idea if these are authentic or not. I attached the photos, but here are the things that I found.

    On the top of the frame, "B&L RAY-BAN U.S.A." was engraved.
    at the bottom of the same frame, "B&L RAY-BAN 58[]14" was engraved.
    Both lenses have "BL" on it, there are also "BL" on the nosepads.

    See attached photos. Those are the clearest shots I could give. Please let me know if these are authentic or not.

    Hi. Unfortunately it doesn't have the casing since I found this in a box where my mom put all the items my dad had by the time he died. But my mom confirmed this one used to have a case. She just forgot where she put it. I'm still looking for it now.
