  • This was a classic design and shape from the mid-1950's

    in the USA. It is a rimless design with the Polaroid plastic

    lenses held at three points to the frame by way of riveted

    brackets. This design features in an American ad we have

    from 1956
    . We're not sure if it is the same model as the

    angle of the photo of the beat cop doesn't allow us to see

    the shape of the lens but if it isn't, then it was part of this

    range. The ad goes on to say that the cop's pair was model

    #98 costing $2.98 - not cheap for 1956. The lenses on our

    pair not perfect as the absence of a frame to protect the

    lenses leaves them vulnerable, but we've seen much worse

    and these are very wearable - and UV protective to boot.
