Vintage B&l Ray-ban Ostrich Leathers Shooter Burgundy Ultra Gradient 62mm For Sale
Up for sale is a beautiful pair of vintage Ray-Ban leather shooters
by Bausch and Lomb. These glasses are coming out of my personal
collection and are rare, extremely desirable and in great condition. The
glasses themselves have 62mm beige ultra-gradient Changeable lenses.
Indoors, the glasses have a beige gradient tint, while when exposed to
ultraviolet light outdoors, the Changeable lenses darken to an even
gradient to block out sunlight. This particular pair has the very rare
bullet hole bridge - something you don't see very often in leather. The
frames are wrapped and stitched with matching tan ostrich leather.
Hallmarkings include the white "Ray-Ban" logo laser-etched into the top
corner of the left lens, with the interlocking sideways-oriented "BL"
logo etched into both lenses by the hinges. The top bridge is marked
"B&L Ray-Ban USA."This particular pair of sunglasses is in mint condition with the exception of one small flaw - one small piece of leather between the bullet hole and nose pad arm is missing. This is a common defect on the leather shooters, and many people decide to remove the same strip of leather on the opposite side of the frame to match, and it still looks great. I have seen high-end Ray-Ban dealers do this and sell the glasses as mint, but I have elected to be forthright, leave them as they are and let next owner decide what he or she wants to do with the glasses. Aside from this, the glasses are in beautiful condition. The Ultra Gradient lenses are in perfect condition with absolutely no scratches or blemishes. The ostrich leather looks great and has no discernible wear or discoloration. The gold frames look bright and have a great luster to them. The nose pads are perfect. The glasses look like they've hardly been worn. I bought these used due to their rarity and have never worn them. Overall, this is a beautiful pair of Ray-Bans that collectors will recognize as highly desirable and very rare. They instantly stand out to everyone and look great on both men and women. These glasses are getting very scarce and are hardly seen in this condition. The original case, which bears the Ray-Ban "Leathers" logo on it, is
included with the sale. The case is structurally in great functional shape, though it does have some blemishes. Shipping to the United States will be $9.99. International shipping will
be a flat-rate of $40. HOWEVER, buyers from Malaysia or Italy must
contact me prior to purchase. I will ship to these countries, but only
via UPS with insurance due to past experience. The glasses will be
shipped safely and securely within 1 business day of receipt of payment.
If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me and I
will get back to you as soon as possible.
