    I do have a pair of JG X Metal/ Gold. Also 2 pairs of JG Polished / G30. The JG Gold serial number falls between those two G30s. According to O-review, the JG X Metals are early release. So, I'm a little confuse now. Any member here has JG Gold? Would like to see a pic of JG Gold label since I don't have the box.

    JG's are hard to find. your earlier JG g30 might be a lens replacement? or if its close, the serials werent released/sold in order, rather batches so theres some overlap(im guess a few thousand digits overlap)

    Well, those 3 serials are in the range from 1,1xx to 1,2xx. So, only a hundred digits overlap. I don't think they're lens replacement. The G30s have hammer stems while the gold has regular stem.

    Out of interest.. my first pair were X-Metal w/ Gold Iridium and the serial was simply J######

    It was purchased retail at SGH when they first came out.

    Did you get the box at that time? Didn't know J serials come with Gold also.

    I did. But I don't know if I still have it.. from memory the box didn't match the serial. But that's not uncommon for SGH staff who used to pull the first box they saw out.

    Juliet - X Metal - Gold 04-112 with JG###### serial is a late 1990's issue and I know of two label types, the graphic, showing black label with horizontal glass image, and the text label. I need a serial matching, excellent/mint condition pair myself, so if anyone can help please make contact.
