I don't think I've ever seen one. I would think a repro would be plastic instead of glass like originals. Check with the DB dealers.

Thanks for the reply. The only DB dealer I've discovered on my own is Meyers Early Dodge. They list plastic reproductions in their online catalog but don't actually have any left, and doubt that they will be able to get more.

Glass lenses in good shape would be great, but unlikely to find, I think.

I am going to try to make a couple of plastic ones by casting silicone molds of the two lenses I have. One is good on the front and the other one is good on the back.

There was indeed glass reproduction lenses. I bought out a batch a fellow had a few years ago. There were brand new. Not sure I have any extras left though now.
