So my newest buys came in the mail this week. I snagged an E1 fatboy for $25 total and got a three piece lot of GEMs for 14$ total.
The fatboy arrived in pretty decent shape I must say. It's no competition winner but not all that bad. The head has water-spotting on the doors and there seems to be light pitting on the TTO knob (see pics), then there's the typical lose of some color in the adjustment numbers. Would a light polish help remove the water spotting? As for the pitting, I assume it would require a replate but being this will be a shaver it isn't too big of a deal. First pic shows the black spot on the TTO knob which I believe is pitting.
As for the GEMs I got a micromatic which appears fresh from the factory clean, a junior, and some newer plastic handled razor. The junior has mild brassing on the handle and head but it gives it character. As for the plastic razor, I'm not sure what it is but it came with the deal so whatever. It's in great shape other than two SMALL plating spots on the head.
