    Hi,

    What does it mean when a pair of X-Metal XX 24k Oakley's don't have a serial number?

    I saw one person from my research say "second generation frames didn't have serial numbers" then I saw another person say 'second generations had B on the serial number instead of A"

    So what is it?

    Are these possibly a warranty pair?

    Appreciate the information

    does a 4th gen/none serial has lesser value than the serialed/sku ones considering they are the same condition? thanks.

    If in the same condition yes, you will find the higher value in a serialised pair.

    X metals were unserislised from 2004-2009.
    Prior to this they were serialised and post featured an sku (product code).
