I do my best to describe and photograph every item as accurately and honestly as possible. If you require additional information or photos please ask.
Please check out my other listings and positive reviews! Unpaid item cases open automatically. GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT ALL LISTINGS IN MY STORE. BL etching on lenses started in the late 1970s.
It can be located on the top center of the lens or sideways on the outside of the lens facing inward. There is no difference in etched vs. Non-etched lenses other than when they were made.
The presence or lack of etching does not prove or refute authenticity! All of my listings are authentic new old stock, but that doesnt mean that there wont be some variation between pairs of the exact same model especially in models with a metal frame like aviators.They have been in storage for 50-70 years! I note any major issues. Hairline scratches from cleaning and storage is always possible and is more prevalent in glass lenses with mirrored finishes and acetate plastic black frame. Screws and hinges are always authentic vintage, but have likely required tightening and may not be perfect. If you want close up photos of any part of the glasses please ask. I always recommend that you take them to an optician, optometrist, or sunglasses shop for a custom fitting. Nose pads, temples, and hinges can be adjusted for a personalized fit. I put a lot of effort into wrapping and boxing them safely. I appreciate your business and my repeat customers.
