A beauty. I regret selling mine. One day...
Man seeing that razor makes me kinda sad. I have one like this and the gold plating is shot. The doors are pitted pretty bad. Not sure if its salvageable.
An clean desk is a sign of an empty mind.
That is indeed sweet. I'd love to replicate several of my user grades with nice collectables like that, but for now it will have to wait.
I didn't surrender, they made my horse surrender though.

very nice find! The most Diplomats and Presidents are from 1953. Yours is from 1955 and has the sealed dispenser with the original instruction. Congratulations!
Wow! Look sharp! Feel sharp! Be Sharp! (As the old Gillette commercials used to say.)
Good news for someone, my bro says he isn't going to keep it. Unfortunately I'm not ready for one as nice as that. Looks like it'll. E going to a new home shortly.

I like how the lacquer gets that kind of sheen to it when it's still minty. Almost shimmers like an insect wing when you turn it under the light. Not something you see every day.
That is most certainly a thing of beauty.
