1 Early B&L Ray-Ban 12k gold filled 58mm shooter sunglasses c late 1960s / early 1970s feature the famous Bausch & Lomb mineral glass anti-glare lenses and the classic teardrop shape of Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses. The classic aviator look here is combined with cable "shooter" ear stems that provide a nice, secure fit over the ears, and of course the early green 58mm B&L RB-3 lenses provide 100% UV protection and the optical quality for which vintage B&L Ray-Ban eyewear is so well known. The 12k gold plated frame has the "General" brow bar that acquired its name from the Ray-Bans General Douglas MacArthur wore during World War II, and the top of the nose bridge is marked B&L Ray-Ban USA and the bottom of the bridge is marked B&L 1/10 12k GF, all impressed in the gold plating. The unisex frame measures approximately 5.25" temple to temple while the lenses measure approximately 2.125" x 1.75" at the widest points, part of one of the world's best collections of vintage Ray-Bans from a long time customer of the Vintage Sunglasses Shop.
