Authentic 1950s/1960s SAMCO brand, night drive glasses with yellow lenses (not sunny lenses)
These types of models were used for driving at night/driving in fog, to improve the view.
Splitted visor on both lenses.
Black old plastic polymer frame; Hinges with iron graft similar to "riveted screw", a little bit "slack" (normal feature of this type of riveting).
New Old Stock, never been worn still with original sticker on bridge.

40s-50s-60s eyewear (and before) are completely different from the modern quality, they are real HAND-MADE, assembly by skilled labor with the materials of those years and with their era's knowledge.
Don't expect they are in the same quality and detailed as modern eyewear or just as 70s-80s and 90s glasses, but they should be love for their Vintage qualities, rarity, and cause they have pass more decades to be here, still in Lovely condition and perfectly usable and collectible.

Please note: these are glasses from many years ago, sold with "collector's" value.
If you intend to use them, use great caution to avoid unexpected breakages.

----- CONDITION -----

New Old Stock 1950s/1960s, never been worn still with original sticker on bridge.
Frame: Mint condition, minimal storage signs due to long cellar storage; left arm took a little "shaded" nuance due to age, always in black tone (pic). That is less visible when taken in hand and very very hardly noticeable.
Lenses: The lenses of these types of models are not of high quality, and made of thin material used for the sole purpose of improving visibility at night/fog. At first glance they are full of stripes due to the manufacture (pics) and those affect the vision.
They are not sunny lenses, they are slow for the above uses.
Product sold as is, with "collector's" value, not with the purpose of use.

Arm length: 125 mm / 4,92 in
