Fly Shades anyone?

Hi everyone
I was one of the lucky guys to get his hands on one of these real fly shades!!! (not the propaganda model)
Are there more people that also were so lucky to have one of THE Shades?
I've seen them on different sites and in different colours.

They are very dark greenish

Fly Flashback
"The Fly"

Oh, baby child
It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
It's no secret that our world is in darkness tonight
They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon
You know I don't see you when she walks in the room
It's no secret that a friend is someone who lets you help
It's no secret that a liar won't believe anyone else
They say a secret is something you tell one other person
So I'm telling you, child

Love, we shine like a burning star
We're falling from the sky tonight
A man will beg
A man will crawl
On the sheer face of love
Like a fly on a wall
It's no secret at all

It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest
It's no secret ambition bites the nails of success
Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief
All kill their inspiration and sing about their grief
Oh love

Love, we shine like a burning star
We're falling from the sky tonight
A man will rise
A man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It's no secret at all

Achtung baby

Love, we shine like a burning star
We’re falling from the sky tonight
Love, we shine like a burning star
We’re falling from the sky tonight
A man will rise
A man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It's no secret at all

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
The universe exploded 'cause of one man's lie
Look, I gotta go, yeah I'm running outta change
There's a lot of things, if I could I'd rearrange

There used to be a giant thread devoted to Bono's shades. I know someone there could tell you, I don't know if it's around anymore though. Have you looked for a thread like that? You might search for it. Good luck!
