    Of course, the ones with the "+" on them are the very best.
    Sorry about your AD.

    I have two. I will look to see if any have the '+' on them.

    Where does this info come from? Any documentation on the numbers produced with the plus signs would prove helpful otherwise this is just speculation and internet lore. Experts?

    Many red tips have the + from my limited independent observations (sample size of around 20) so I'm curious. Sorry if this is not the correct forum to ask.

    Hey Doug, I probably should've substantiated that claim before posting it as fact. I took the word of a fellow forum member who posted that information on the last red tip thread I was offering for sale. Then, other members also chimed in and backed it up. It tends to be something collectors look for apparently. I should go back and look at my old threads and find the name of the member. He could probably better explain it... I still stand by the accuracy of my description but you have a very good point. Regards, Brian

    Not every Red Tip was produced with the (+) signs. From what I understand Gillette started it so they wouldn't put the wrong heads on the wrong razors. Example: A Red Tip head on a Blue Tip handle. So it was for quality control purposes.

    Are they Rarer?

    I believe so. Not every Red Tip has the markings. So with that I dont see why it wouldnt make them rarer.

    This is the "out of the ordinary" that collectors, like myself, look for and identify. It is something that makes a Red Tip special.

    We appreciate the information! I hope this helps. It definitely makes sense.

    Of my two red-tips, one has the '+', and the other does not. BTW, these razors trigger memories for me, as I think this is the razor I had when I started shaving (at 14).

    Really? That's awsome! I'm only 33 and didn't start shaving until I was 18 or so... I forget what I had but it was definitely plastic gillette and wasn't a DE.
