Very rare and desired color.  A clear ash grey frame that blends in with your complexion or your cool toned hair.. 

Anyone can wear these as the lenses are non prescription clear safety lenses 
marked with the Mine Safety Association abbreviation on each one. This company has been around since 1914.  
These frames are sturdy and in excellent condition.
Silver tone hardware and sturdy riveted barrel hinges. Nice lon 6" temples.  Wide 25mm bridge. Just a great pair of unisex hornrims.

Straightened, polished, and ready for your own Rx, 
or wear them for shits and giggles and of course,  the looks.
The lenses are plain,  with no scratches.

These suit an average oval, rectangular, or heart shaped face. Use the last photo in a Photo Blending App where you can overlap this photo with your selfie to get an idea of how they'll look.  Wear what you like.
