Good info thxFirst never trust eBay sellers for what they say. Take it with a lot of doubt.
there has been some recent new old stock the last yewr two. About a year ago a bunch of warranty frames for XS popped up for pretty cheap. Supposedly they were found in a factory or something—not sure. I had boght two of those pairs and they were mint.
some of the sellers on the forum do have connections. I’m not entirely sure what those connections are but they sometimes will advertise their stuff they receive and resell as new old stock. Mars is an example of this. On case by case basis Members will differ in opinion on if it is “new”or “like new” etc.
I hope that helps.
