Hello,

Thanks for dropping by. I would say that you have a pair of vintage Ray-Ban Wayfarers RB2140. The white logo on the lens is a recent feature. Ray-Ban used to simply etch their lenses when they were owned by Bausch and Lomb. They look well made and authentic.

In my opinion I would say go for it!

Look original to me, however I did spot a lot of fakes on Ebay so I would not be comfortable buying Ray Ban glasses on-line anymore..

Are there common ways or common errors in spotting real vs fakes on places such as ebay?

I have noticed that the button on the case will sometimes be absent of the Ray-Ban logo. Try to only purchase from authorized retailers like OpticsPlanet Inc.

What about the painting/writing on the inside...the "wayfarer" I would assume fakes would have some sort of crappy spray paint type job on them?

It is very difficult to say by the paint job itself. Usually even fake sunglasses have good painting on them. It depends on case by case basis. The Ray Ban sunglasses on the picture look real to me.
