Ha I think we have a stand off ;-)

I notice I wrote purple instead of violet for some reason....

I keep looking for some mk1 froggies with screwed lenses on the bay which is more likely than the other way round

Will have to get round to posting some photos of my collection - is it sad that I now have a cabinet for them?!

Pretty sure Mk2 lenses don't fit Mk1. At least the mk2 lenses don't fit the mk1 frames I have...

Could be on for a swap Mr Drapoon. Are the crystal frames starting to craze yet?

This is what I have. Blue Mk1 not fo' sale.

I had a pair of mk1 in prescription back in Uni, went to the Uni bar and had a few beers then decided it would be a good idea to have a go on a bouncy castle, only to go head on with someone's knee and both the arms on the Frogskins snapped off…ended up gluing them back into place, god I looked a dork!!!
