Can't believe this was even available!

And I hate to admit it, but since I have a pair already that are serviceable, these might end up being a shelf-hoe (but clean not dirty one) Ha! :cool:

Thanks! Actually also got a vintage pair of Original Fives (FMJ 9mm/Black) that are prob a 9 out of 10 about an hour later on there. They should be here tomorrow..

Funny thing about that is, they are the pair I got to replace these Frogs back in '97. #WhatIsOldIsNewAgain

Dude not trying to rain on your parade, but I don't believe you have what you think you have. Gen 2 hinges were not beveled like that. They took on a look that you can see in this thread: http://www.oakleyforum.com/oakley-frogskins-exchange/9623-two-left-frog-stems-only-ten-bucks.html

Plus its my understanding that the gen 2's came with a plastic clear box and the gen 1's came in the box that you have. This part I am less certain about.

Appreciate the help/input dude.

They appear to be the same exact frame as the vintage pair I got from someone on this board, as well as an old pair a got from a personal friend. And the box is what I remember getting when I got at least one of my old pairs in the 90's. I think the clear plastic was just Gen 1. I'm 100% on the lenses.

Not referring to the color it is all in the hinges. The gen 3 are more reinforced the gen 2 are not. See that picture I linked and some modern frogs for reference. Don't want to argue about it though just wanted to point that out.
