I can answer that. I hold 2 pairs of the RB2140's in my hand, one without a letter between made in Italy and CE and one with a B present. They were shipped from Lux/Ray-Ban and are 100% authentic.

Josh, what does it mean if there is no letter between "hand made in Italy" and the CE. Does that mean the factory the glasses were made in are not an authentic luxottica/ray ban factory?

on the left temple the "3N" would mean a category 3 Normal UV filtering lens. the numbers could range between 1-4 to indicate color density (1 being lightest, 4 being darkest) and the letter is either n (normal UV filter), P (polarized) or F (photochromic), but do not indicate material used. inside the right temple the letter indicates which production facility the piece was produced at ( A = Agordo, L = Lauriano, etc.). Each facility has a specialty so it is also an indicator of the frame material (k=injection molded plastic, A or B = milled acetate, etc.). to determine lens material can be more difficult, but in the glass lenses the RB logo on will be laser etched into the front of the lens, while the synthetic lenses will have the RB logo embossed from the back of the lens.

Hi and thank you for the post. Could you please send a picture of this "S"? I can't say that I have seen that before. I will forward the picture or pictures to Ray-Ban and see what they say.

What is the "s" marking on the lens next to Ray Ban? I see a "P" is sometimes used to denote Polarization, but what about the "s" on mine?

If the K is there then they are real. Ray-Ban won't tell me what L or K means, but they assure me that they are.

They seem very authentic.



Another thing that I'm confused about is that I have another pair of RB2151 with exactly the same numbers and everything but they have a "B" on the right leg while the ones I'm looking to buy don't have any letter. Can you help me understand this, I really don't wanna buy a fake pair but with this style being discontinued there hard to find. Please help me lol

The Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses, Black Frame with Crystal Green in 50mm Lenses (901-5022) does not contain any amount of gold or precious stones. There were some models that used to have this feature for some limited edition models. Ray-Ban will do that occasionally and very rarely.

K usually means limited edition
L usually stands for a Large frame
T sometimes means tech collection
A and B I am still waiting to hear back from Ray-Ban themselves.

Hello,

Thank you for the post. I would start by researching the compnay that you bought them from. Also contact Ray-Ban and see if that dealer is an authorized retailer unless it's a private owner that sold you the sunglasses. It may be a defect with the pair so check on the retailer's exchange policy.

These steps should give you some piece of mind.

Hello there,

I've just got this nice new wayfarer rb2132-901L raybans and just wondering about it's authenticity .. Because my previous raybans feels very smooth at every angle (also rb2132 lost them).. but this new one i feel bit of edgy corners specially on top sides of two side and upper part of front end :( otherwise everything was nice maybe this is new one and bit different than that sold in 2012 ?

Thanks for the post. Official answer from Ray-Ban: "The letters L, K and A are demarcations from our manufacturer, they don’t contain any size/color/material information that would be of any use for the end user."

The presence of Ray-Ban MADE IN ITALY A CE is your proof of authenticity. Enjoy your sunglasses.

Those numbers seem right. Heavy is good, it indicates they are glass.
