I don't know how I managed to get this for 12 dollars, but this is an unused Ever-Ready 500PBT in the original box. The box, as you can see from the pic is a little dirty, but otherwise in excellent shape. The brush is, as can also be seen in the pics, absolutely minty. Going to use it tonight and see what my father or grandfather might have felt the first time they shaved with a brush like this.
I guess there are still buys to be had on eBay though this brush is an exception to the rest of my recent experience. A lone exception.
Apologies for the poor pix. I am one of the world's worst photographers.
