    The aim of this thread is to chronicle the very rarest of the 3rd generation Frogskins model and to gather information about them. Whilst another essential thread on this Forum titled Rare Frogskins (www.oakleyforum.com/threads/rare-frogskins-list.730/) has hugely contributed to lists, information, and pictures of rare Frogs, I wanted to develop a thread that specifically targets the ultra rarest of the rare, and there is a world in the Frogskin universe where a lengthy list can be put forward in this regard, a world where a St Valentine's Day, Blends, or an Andrew Petterson are seemingly common by comparison. This is about the 12, 10, or lower quantity releases, the 'one offs', prototypes, the pairs where only 1 or 2 are known to exist. The problem I have is seeing images of incredible Frogskins clearly in this realm but information is lacking as the whether they are customized by a third party, or are made at the Oakley factory, perhaps knowledge about these can be made known here. Maybe members can throw some light on some glasses listed, especially regarding quantity made, as that is the central focus that makes these so stupungously rare. Any information on other appropriate genuine Oakley manufactured Frogskins would be welcome.

    Anyone here know how many Schoolbus yellow frogs were made before they changed to neon yellow. I have both and I actually like the bus pair better. It's the polished finish I think that makes it so nice
