    The lower one looks fake, not only from the lettering, but from the shape of the lens.

    Yeah one on the right maybe fake. It doesnt have the protrusion on the upper right corner.

    Unless its a Jordan lens which are a tad smaller and without the protrusion. I'd have to check the font on mine as it's something I've never looked at. I'll check later for you .

    The bottom one are the original lenses that came with the first Romeos. Eventually they moved onto the thicker font as shown in the top lens. I don't know when they made this transition, but it was pre-2000.

    I, too, have seen slight differences in font size between different sets of genuine OEM lenses. I didn't know if that also applied to these R1s so I've kept quiet to see what happened. With Calgary Dreaming confirming that they did that with these R1s, I thought it time to throw in my .02, FWIW...

    Looks like both are real just different Generations. Plus there are differences in alot of earlier xmetals due to the molding process.
