View Full Version : FS: Gillette President and Two Old Style Ball-End Types
10-23-2010, 12:10 AM
RAZORS SOLD--THREAD CLOSED OUT!
Well, to feed my desire to keep buying and trying new razors, I have to let these go.
First up is the Gillette President. It is a beautiful razor--one small spot on the handle where there is something (plate loss or dirty) but everything else is amazingly spectacular.
Based on PMs traded and discussion on the safety razor board, I am listing at $110 $100 shipped CONUS with Insurance paid for by me. I'll ship outside of US for actual shipping costs factored in.
For more President Pics, there are 11 at this Flickr Feed: http://www.flickr.com/photos/48652652@N08/sets/72157625096911459/
If you think the price is too high, please let me know--I really didn't know how to price this one!

More pics of the president. Again, the Flickr feed with 11 photos is at:
Photos of the Old Styles are in next two posts.

Two Old Styles. Nice condition. SOLD
Hairline fractures in handles for both--otherwise everything is sound and looks good. The second Old Style has a hairline in the ball-end side and the "neck" side of the handle.
Flickr feed for these is: http://www.flickr.com/photos/48652652@N08/sets/72157625096931253/
I'm asking $12 $10 each or $20 $18 for the pair, shipped CONUS.

Old Style #2--note in one of the pics a slight spot in handle where finish is gone right above my thumb. I was trying to point it out.
Again, total Flickr feed for photos is: http://www.flickr.com/photos/48652652@N08/sets/72157625096931253/

I did have some issues pricing these three razors. If any are out of line, please PM me.
If you're interested in buying a razor but may have budgetary restrictions, PM me and let's see what we can do. I don't think anyone has needed a razor I've had and not been able to work something out with me within their budget.

Post bumped to update a price drop of 10% or more.
The President is now $100 shipped and the Old Styles are each $10 or both for $18. All prices include shipping in CONUS.
I won't turn down any acceptable offers--I want to hit the antique shops Sunday after Soccer!

In discussion on Old Types, with one back-up offer. For now, these may be sold. The President is still available.
There appears to be some dirt or something showing in the Gillette President photo not showing up to the naked eye. I'll do an unltrasonic clean and see if that gets rid of it. If it does, I'll re-post pictures.

Ball-ends are sold as a pair to Phoenix_One for $18 CONUS.
President is still available. I still plan on cleaning it tonight and will post new pics if appropriate. Thanks!

Because I have information I think is pertinent to all buyers, and because someone mentioned it in a PM--
The "marks" on the handle that look like brassing aren't. I just cleaned it with scrubbing bubbles and then liquid bartender's helper and the marks are gone.
So, there is no longer any mark on the handle. The handle is pristine. I will post pics in the morning.
Also, the pics show a "gold" tint on the inside of the head in the pics. That is just reflection of the light. There is no brassing on the razor or discoloration--hopefully pics taken in a different location tomorrow will show that.
Beautiful razor Judge.
Good luck with the sale.

Awesome Sebvelez. I hope you enjoy it! I found a Diplomat that should be winging its way to me, so I'm gonna have a shave with that first thing when it comes in!
