    Managed to get my hands on a few pairs over the last couple of weeks. :)

    A pair of X Metal Romeos, Plasma Juliets and X Metal XX.

    Romeos, not quite matched serial, but close.

    Frames are in great condition, lenses are ok and box is ok apart from the fact that someone seems to have used it as a drinks coaster o_O

    Juliets, needed a tuneup, so I tried it myself. First time. It went OK, but I don't see myself doing it again any time soon.

    Interestingly they also have a line down the earstem, which I find surprising. Anyone seen something like that before?

    XXs need new lenses and a tuneup, so sending it to EU customer care to see what they can sort out. I have been told that they have lenses, will need to see if they have anything else.

    Very nice pick ups and I will agree that the casting marks are not uncommon (especially on the earlier stuff). Congrats :drinks:

    Very nice pickups. Oh and the serial numbers on the box matches. They come that way. I think on that label they only published in that format (X#####)

    Oh, great! I thought it was just a coincidence that they were so close. Thanks very much @dragonvoi for confirming.
