    Hi there.
    I recently bought these Juliets second hand with no box. They are x metal in colour with what look like a dark reddish iridium lens.

    They don't have a serial number on them (see third picture), and a strange indentation where the serial should be.

    The first photo is in natural light on a cloudy day.

    The second photo is under artificial "cold" LED light.

    As far as I know, they haven't been resurfaced/resprayed.

    Which model Juliets are these? And how can I tell if these are aftermarket lenses or original? I haven't

    Thanks in advance.

    that looks like x-metal finish. Remove 1 lens from the frame and post up pics of a close-up of the lens edge and we can help you determine if it's OEM or aftermarket

    Casting marks (3rd pic) and either a 4th gen XM or refinish.

    He meant the actual edge of the lens, not the orbital :)

    @Litos and @jdd32
    The lenses have curved edges, so I assume they're original??

    I'm pretty good, but not good enough to know if it's a 4th gen...

    I think the gen is dictated by the color...this one has a bit more yellow at the edge and since it doesn't have a serial, I "think" it's a 4th gen...

    I'll let the experts come in here and correct me if I'm wrong...
