    I know! Though they are pretty much seen as the rarest of the models. Yeah the extra plastic is for protection from the metal frames. Obviously as it was so cold, there was the chance if skin sticking to the metal frames, so the extra bar was to prevent that happening! Awesome hey!

    I've seen LIC a couple of times at the bottom, typical Bausch and Lomb making it hard for us! I think it's because of the 52mm models.

    So how "rare" are ambernatic lenses . Seems like people on eBay charge an arm and leg for them compared to regular lenses?

    I think and it is only my personal view that in terms of rarity it is not really that hard to come by,
    as you can see there are always a number of them available on eBay.
    However, most of them being offered are used with varying conditions, and only a handful of them are pristine or new old stock.
    To me, and again strictly personally, Ambermatic is more "desirable" than a "rarity", as I have a feeling that quite many people, me inclusive, are quite fond of it, probably due to its unique light-sensing and color-changing property.

    Hi [@]musehead,

    I just bought a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses at a fleamarket that have some different markings than what I'm accustomed to seeing. I was hoping that maybe you could give me some insight on whether or not these sunglasses are even real, and if so, what time period they might be from. I've included some pictures if that helps. Any information on my flea market buy would be greatly appreciated.[​IMG]

    6 years ago i bought these from some lady for almost nothing. I took a chance and these are what arrived in the mail.

    Precious metals, 62mm. Pretty good condition too. Some very very light scratching on the lenses and some weird discoloring on the gold where the different bars connect, almost like burn/weld marks?
    I'd take more pictures but it's nighttime and i can't find my macro lens.

    Anyhow, i've used them exactly once in these 6 years, they are way to bling bling for me. Thinking about selling them, or maybe trading them for something less in your face.
    That is if they're genuine, what do you guys think. Any ideas on value if they are?

    Nah they are real. Folding wayfarers. Did they have a case? Nice and collectible!
