    My father and I were digging up some old stuff at his house from a long time ago, when we ran into a bunch of sunglasses. He had a few Oakleys he bought from back in the day, and he said I could have this pair. I need help finding what they are called and when they made. And a value if possible. I can't research the Internet because there is no codes or serial numbers. All I have for y'all is pictures. I'm 95% sure these are real, I can just tell by a few things. Ok here are the pictures.

    I would agree. That would be the best match in my view too, from those pics. Although I'm not sure about that stretch text on the ear-stem. Weren't they just an icon?

    I would think that @dann, @BriP, and @qtrain23 would also be keen eyes for this one.

    nailed it guys, Zero 0.4 (standard) in glitter gulch... first generation (thinstretch) makesit slightly more desireable. the bulk of 0.4's shipped as gen2's with the oval icon.

    great find!

    value- mint with box ~ 200,
    mint no box ~ 160/170
    any large defects (scratched lenses etc)~ 120max

    remember zeros are not designed for lens swaps so condition is everything with these

    By the time the 0.4's rolled out, they boxy thinstretch was no longer being used, so there's really only two gens. Otherwise it would be like a gen 1.5. Icons were more of a 1996/1997 thing, despite appearing on the Eye Jacket in late 1994. Even the M Frames took a short while to catch up.
