    looking at buying a pair of 1 gen Romeo's should the serial number on the box be hand written in or printed from the factory?

    Is 095885 a low serial number?

    Not particularly.... But if you like them and they are a good price, go for it!

    Agree with @joecool862 , way more important than a low serial number is the condition of the frame and lenses (hopefully OEM of course).

    As XMan noted, hand written in a small white field at the bottom of the label.
    That would make yours almost the 100 thousandth pair of that colorway. Not low by any stretch but still a great pair of sunnies and an important part of Oakley history.
