    Which Gen plasma? - image.jpg Which Gen plasma? - image.jpg Just got this pair in a trade. I've been searching and trying to determine which generation of plasma it may be. At first I was told no serial so it's 4th gen. But I looked at the frame today and it has a faded serial number on the arm. Any ideas? My other plasma frame has a shine to it whereas this one is matte.

    Is the serial supposed to fade? Or is that from a refinish?

    Too "silvery" for 1st Gen IMHO. I'm calling TI/Gold.... Going on tiny rivit heads, Gold lenses & Rootbeer rubber kit. My money is on a "T" serial extremely faint on left earstem.

    Looks like you might be right. I can barely make out a T in the serial followed by some numbers. Good call! Any fix for the faded serial or is it beyond saving?
