    Hello,
    I am new to this forum and need to make a few post before I can go out in the classifieds to replace a fond pair of Frogs I misplaced in a panic. I will go on statement saying I have never lost a pair in the 8-9 years of owning frogs and this and was tough. Also it has opened my eyes to the fact that I should wear a normal pair of 24-306's daily and not my beloved VW 24-306's. I am not a avid collector with boat loads of knowledge but I do know quite a bit about frogs and have a enjoyable collection of 14 not so average frogers. So with that I figure why not start a discussion in regards to the beloved pair I am seeking to replace the VW black polished with grey lens.

    So I do know a few things and I have a few questions.
    I know:
    -They were only sold at the dealer. That is where I bought my pair. I own several VW's and love frogs so it was a why the heck not thing at time of purchase.
    -They were basic 24-306's with just a simple roughly 1/4" \X/ symbol etched on the lower left lens.
    -They are no longer available at the dealer.
    -They were 8X.XX bucks new. I was happy paying that compared to some of the special pairs I had bought prior.

    Questions:
    -What are they going for today?
    -How likely am I to find a pair NIB in a reasonable amount of time and at a fair price?
    -How many were produced/Made? Seeing as they where basic 24-306's that were etched and boxed nothing over the top. No new Oakley number.
    -How rare were/are they? I feel they are just a step above the average. Definitely no gold Berrics or anything.
    -Were they sold anywhere else out side of VW dealerships? Possible out stock somewhere?
    -Is there anywhere or anyone that etches lenses in this fashion. worst case scenario. Would probably never do this cause I had the idea of a copy just as bad a fake even if they were on authentic 24-306's.

    I had a pair I bought off the VW site. No numbers on production. I traded mine to RVF last year. There was a pair on here for sale a while back for $175 along with a ton of other rare pairs. I dont believe it sold

    Thanks Nortika.

    Thank you as well the_owl. I got my fingers cross I can find a pair for a bit less then 175. They are unique but at 175 I would rather add a little more coin on top and add something better to the collection like some old glories. I got a little over a week till I can post up a WTB. Wish me luck and thanks again.

    Thanks for the meaningful reply Mohamed. That is some good input....

    I guess he must be in a rush to get his post count up for the buying and selling pages.
