1937 Gillette Sheraton Safety Razor w Case Blades - Classified Ad

1937 Gillette Sheraton Safety Razor w Case Blades - Classified Ad

1937 Gillette Sheraton Safety Razor w Case Blades

All My Items Are Sold for Best Offer
  
  Gillette 1937 Sheraton Twist-To-Open "TTO" Safety Razor in Very Good+ 
vintage condition.  Although used, this razor is in Very Good+ condition, 
the razor head doors open and close smoothly and has No plate loss or brassing.  
The weight of the Sheraton is 53g.  The case is in very good+ vintage condition 
and shows very little wear, the box top stays open about 1/32 of an inch. 
The shaving kit comes with an unopened package of NOS Gillette Blue Blades. 
This great vintage razor feels very good in the hand while shaving.  Its 
length is 8.3cm. 

  I purposely took close-up photos so you can see any imperfections or signs 
of wear on the razor.  If you are the buyer you will find that the razor, in 
person, looks better than in the photos. 

  The 1937 Gillette Sheraton Safety Razor was introduced by Gillette for the 1937 
Christmas season and then discontinued in 1939.  It is purported to be non-aggressive  
and to provide a truly excellent shave.  The razor has been cleaned, polished, 
pampered, and disinfected using antibacterial soap and Barbacide, it is shave ready. 

  Gillette 1930's open combs are considered some of the best shaving Gillettes 
ever produced.  This razor is the predecessor to the beloved Senator and has the 
same head and overall design, but the door attachments match the earlier 1930's 
British and American TTO's.  We believe the earlier attachment provides a little 
greater detail and makes the razor slightly more attractive than the Senator.

1918 Gillette U.S. Army Razor w NOS Blades

1918 Gillette U.S. Army Razor w NOS Blades

1918 Gillette U.S. Army Razor w NOS Blades
RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  You are looking at a 1918 Gillette U.S. Army Razor. The razor is in EXCELLENT 
condition. The finish is clean.  There are two very small STABLE stress
fractures in the handle, which is very common in Gillette's hollow handle
razors.  This great collectible is in excellent condition and still shines, 
there are no broken teeth but there are two that are slightly bent inwards, 
which could be quite easily fixed.  Although there is a tiny bit of plate 
loss on the edge of the upper blade plate this is still a magnificent 
collectible.  Also included are five NOS Gillette Thin Blades which have 
never been opened. SERIEL NUMBER J3491 which makes this great collectible 
from 1918. 

  It was made for WWI, and was sold to the US government.  The underside of 
the bottom blade plate reads "PROPERTY OF U.S. ARMY". 1918 E449208-J7344, 
Plus F/G/H (no I) J Series, all U.S. military Models 102, 3.5 million razors 
produced for US forces in WWI. 35 million blades produced for US forces in 
WWI.  My everday Gillette is an Old Style just a few years newer than this 
one. Best shave on the planet.

  The Gillette Service Sets (in the metal cases) were sold through retailers 
(at least through Sears, Roebuck) and were also from around 1918 but DID NOT 
read "PROPERTY OF U.S. ARMY". There are at least three versions of this for 
the U.S. and one Canadian version. There's also one lithographed tin for the 
U.S. This is a military razor.  It says: "PROPERTY OF U.S. ARMY" on the 
bottom blade plate. Please be sure to look at the pictures as they are part 
of the description.
