    Outdoorsman leathers with G15 lenses, 58mm..? i think the leather series is from the mid/late 80s. They seem to be in good condition. Unfortunately this was the bais leathers model with the most common type lenses. I would say the value would be around $100-140 when in proper condition. NOS a bit more. But yeah i think theyre the least popular in the leathers series.
    The more popular are the woven and the ostrich ones.

    Hi oosterling,

    To ensure the originality of the lenses, we can measure the UV (Ultraviolet) strength instead of looking at the BL sign on the lenses. Its important for me to know the originality of the lenses since i got a lot of BL lenses that doesn't have any BL logo.
    I've send my uncut lens to the optic shop to verify the originality of the lenses. you may refer to the picture:

    **UV testing - not using BL lenses

    this is the output of UV testing by using machine. it show 375 units. For BL lenses, normally it will up to 400 Units.

    Hi dawayoutz,

    Rayban USA BL 58mm ODM (Outdoorsman) with ambermatic lense.
    For my opinion, the market price around 100 USD.


    thanks

    Hi there,

    I've lost one of the hinge screws of my vintage B&L Ray Ban Clubmasters tortoise shell, does anyone know where I could find a replacement for them? I tried purchasing a set on eBay but they didn't fit at all. No luck at the optometrists either...

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey you... out there on the web, can you help me?!? [​IMG] please?
    My mother received this pair of rays as a gift between 1993 and '95. They've got all the marking: the logo sig. with the the diamond on the left lens (facing) and the BL etched on both lenses, b & l Ray-Ban USA on the inside of the bridge and even BL engraved (?) on the metal underneath the nose piece. On vintagesunglassesshop.com they're listed as "diamond hard sunglasses". Is that what I have? What are they worth? I'm not a fan of gold anything so they're just sitting in a drawer. They're in pretty pristine condition and I'm looking to sell them. Thanks in advance!
