    I have a NIB x-metal ruby Juliet that I bought a long time ago from a forum member. I just put them up without looking at them closely. I was gonna put them up for sale then noticed this. They are in the correct 3 piece box, have the H sticker on the lens, the frame is perfect and new, BUT they don't have a SKU. The frame is unmarked.
    Is it possible they could have shipped that way or do you think there been swapped around?

    Possible - Yes

    However, most likely they were swapped. It could have been intentional, perhaps even mismatched from a store once upon a time. I have seen a couple mismatched in a retail environment closer to the end of the [retail] run.

    IIRC unmarked 4th-gens were shipped with both old and new box styles over their run.

    Correct, the very tail end of the 4th gen has three-piece boxes - I have an unmarked Ducati in one.
