My wife and I made a visit to some antiques stores today and the shaving gods smiled upon our journey. In the fourth antique store we ventured into, in the very last case before the exit, I see a razor. And what was it but a silver ABC Floral!!! I tried to contain my excitement and had my wife stand guard by the case as I went to get somebody with the keys. When I took it out of the case, I knew it was going home with me. The price tag: $30.00. I asked how firm they were on the price and he said, we could do $27.00. I don't even know why I asked, but I did. I got out my credit card and look at what I brought home! My quest is complete. Maybe tomorrow, I'll post some photos of the lot.
The razor itself looks quite good. There are two slightly bent teeth, but both go slightly inward and down, so it shouldn't effect the shave much at all.
The case has the initials C.A.H. engraved on the top, which looks really cool. Unfortunately, the case has a touch of what looks like paint on the back side of it. I've wondered what I could try using to get it off. I thought about paint thinner, but I don't know if that would be a good idea. Does anybody have any suggestions?
