Item specifics

Pre-owned: An item that has been used or worn previously. See the seller’s listing for full details and ... Read moreabout the condition

These special sunglasses were made by American Optical in the 1950s and are called "HazeMaster" because of the yellow lenses. I found an article online that was written for a magazine in 1975 that says "because it does not screen out the infrared end of the spectrum, and doesn’t reduce brightness very much, AO refuses to call it a sunglass, referring to it invariably as an “outdoor glass” or a “shooting glass.”

The frames are tortoise with arms that curve in about an inch from the ends. Here are the measurements:

Height of front: 1 3/4"
Width of front: 5 5/8"
Length of arm: 6"


I sent these frames to Shuron USA and had the yellow lenses removed and replaced them with a pair of G15 polarized lenses.  Receipt is available upon request.  I will include the original yellow lenses with this purchase.  Free shipping.  All sales final and no refunds. Payment is due within 24 hours after auction ends.  If you pay with a credit card or debit card then I ship the same day I get your payment.  If you wire the money directly from your bank account then I have to wait until the payment clears before I can ship the item.   These are in great shape as you can see.  No scratches on the lenss.
