    I purchased my first complete pair of x-metals and it's a Half X... I really wanted the second gen coin and I wanted this frame in carbon or polished. I paid a little more than I usually would, but I like them more than I expected to! They have the original BIP (one scratch) and bronze polarized installed. The hinges, frame and box seem like new. Trying to decide on lens color. Just the Mars to go...

    I believe OakleyVault.com still has some half-X replacement lenses available. Selection is sparse but price is a steal...

    First gen coin is the bigger flat one, second gen is smaller but thicker.

    No separate nose, no jet intake, weird earstems - the Half X really is the Jon Snow of the range... Still, essential if you're collecting the family.

    Gotcha, I have the large, flat one and I thought it was an early one based on when I purchased it. I like the frame though myself and wear em quite often.

    Bastard!!! :D

    But actually Jon Snow may be the key to the series... PM me if you want the speculation, that GRRM has maybe confirmed...

    I'm towards the end of the second volume of a Storm of Swords, so trying to avoid any speculation right now :)

    IMO (and that of others), that one (book three) was the best of the series, to date... Enjoy! :D
