    J Serial X Metal Juliet - image.jpg Bought off Craigslist for $87 (shipping included). Questions: very rare? Finish hold up well?

    Right lens scratched pretty good, but left proved to be good. Replaced w/titanium polarized. Nose is about an 7 or 8. I like them!

    J is for Just an early X Metal Juliet.
    Does it have the cross-hatching on the nose bomb attachment points like I showed you at my house?
    The finish should hold up as well as any other x metal finish, it's just an earlier XMetal / Black (non-polar) pair.

    Cross hatching looks like this:
    J Serial X Metal Juliet - CH.jpg
    You see it on cylinder walls of engines and on the backstraps/ foregrips of weapons as well as an art drawing technique..
    Basically you engrave crossed lines in a material to facilitate grip.
    Early Juliets have crosshatching on the nose bomb mounts.

    Me too, I have one in the teens, one in the 40s and one in the low 100s (all 000s) - will be interesting to see where the cut off is.

    Not cross hatched on 19xxx or 46xxx, must have ended before that.
