Hello everyone and thanks for the invite. I stumbled across what I think are an old pair of B&L vintage Ray Ban shooting glasses with a tin case. I’ll include some pictures and if anyone can elaborate on what these are and how much they’re worth. I haven’t even tried cleaning them yet sorry for the dust lol. Thanks
Eric

Hello, not sure if you still post on here or privately contact the people that are seeking information, but I might as well post what I have and hope for the best. So I found this pair of aviators in the case at a big thrift store believe it or not, it was among the other junk, hats, glasses, shoes, etc.. and when I picked these up inside the case I kind of thought... nah, really? So after I opened it obviously I realized I should probably grab these up with the rest of the crap I had in tow and scoot out the store. Needless to say I hadn't quite seen before a pair such as these and figured that this had to be the real thing. I do believe these are 100% genuine and have tried to do what research/confirmation online I could, but only to some avail.

I know that these are classic aviators and are possibly unique because of the cable ends on them and that they could be military aviators, but possibly not? because they have the green-type of lenses and not yellow or black. They also have the B&L on the inside of the pinkish orangeish color (or whatever color/material it is) of the nose rests. They have the RAY-BAN markings on the top of the bridge, but they only say RAY-BAN and not RAY BAN USA that people keep mentioning. Underneath they do have the B&L 1/10 12K GF inscription. So obviously what im wondering, to anyone out there,..Why does this pair have cable ends instead of the typical ends that I see on most vintage pairs for sale online? Did some people just order them that way as an upgrade of sorts? Also, of course, why does this pair say RAY-BAN and not the RAY BAN USA and what year did that change? I have seen on some 1950s (early 1950s?) pairs that DO only say RAY-BAN, so that leads me to believe they are 1937-1950s(latest). Any honest and helpful answers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hello,
I have a question about a pair of ray ban aviator. Some weeks ago I bought a pair of 70's aviator RB-3 lenses NOS. They were in their original cellophane envelope still to be opened, with inside the lite brown case and paper. They are engraved BL Ray Ban USA on the browbar and the lenses are etched with BL (in 4 parts) at 12. None engraving underneath and this looked quite strange for me. Somebody told me this means that the frame colour (gold plated?) is more thinner and easy to be scratched than those with browbar engraved underneath with the glasses size.
What is your opinion?
Thank you in advance for your answer.
F.

I would really love some help identifying these glasses that were handed down to me from my grandfather. He was in the Navy and part of Operation Deep Freeze. I believe these to be 1958 model glasses given to him during the expedition. Any info would help! Email me at [email protected] for more info!

I am a self proclaimed expert on Bausch and Lomb aka Vintage Ray Bans. I have a degree in Vintage Ray Ban Eyewear, if you need help or have a question this is the place to get answers. I also buy them if you have a pair or more you want to sell. Cheers.
Hi musehead. I have a pair of Ray Ban lenses made by Bausch and Lomb that were in a pair of Ray Ban Daddy-O sunglasses. The lenses broke but I saved the lenses and have held onto them all this time. They have a P on them next to the Ray Ban logo. BUT… the P isn’t a normal P. It had 3 lines through it. Also the lenses have a very vibrant look through them as well as a yellowish tent through them also. Do you have any knowledge or explanation as to what the special P means and what type of lenses they are. I almost thought they could have been an early version or special color blind type Lense or something. I am red green color blind I found out when I enlisted in the army. When I put the lenses on they seem to make the colors more vibrant and easier differentiated. Or is it just a coincidence.

Hey everyone, so I’ve been building up quite a stash of old glasses and am looking for help ID’ing/dating some of these. I figured I could find a military uniform site with this info but no dice so far.

IMG_9229.jpeg

1) outdoorsman in black? (Possible to find a new plastic brow bar and some of those yellow replacement lenses?)

2) stamped P 1/10 12k GF . The only other marking I could find just says GF. Interesting indentation/ridges at the top of the frame -not sure if it’s by design or they got crushed IMG_9230.jpeg

IMG_9231.jpeg

3). I feel like I found stamping on these before but couldn’t tonight.

Looking forward to discussing!
