    So I'm bored at work and was admiring my recently acquire X-metal Juliets. Then I notice a serial number! I've had them a couple months and never noticed. I don't know much about serial numbers or rarity but I know you guys will. I don't think my other pair has one so it seemed odd.

    SN: J000263

    Tell me they're super rare and worth millions! Haha but really just thought I'd get some info.

    Thanks

    Are they worth any more with a serial?

    I would say no, but if someone is looking for a certain number they might pay a little more for it.

    it is not so much a valued piece because an x metal pair has a serial number, remember there were generally 1000s of glass with numbers on the left arm. the key is the condition of the pair, that all original contents are complete, the box is excellent/mint, and the number matches the label, if you add in a pair thats rare anyway, then the value is higher. think of a mint serial match ichiro, a pristine serial match ti clear juliet, versus a scratched average condition low serial anything with tatty non matching box or no box.

    it depends what kinda collector you are. i would pay more $ for a gently used first gen plasma/fire juliet than a brand new and sealed in box late gen plasma/fire with no serial. for me the demand is dependent on many factors and not simply limited to only one of serial numbers, boxes, or condition

    Is there a certain serial number people look for? I have a pair and they don't fit right so I really want to get rid of them

    What do you have a pair of? What is the color combo and serial if you don't mind posting?
