    That sure looks like a silver old type to me.

    Amish, that would kinda guide us in right direction on the identity of razor. Gold or Silver. maybe its all brass from plate loss

    Jay's doesn't look gold to me. The photos just look a little dark. Here's a version that I've brightened up a bit:

    Maybe your monitor settings are messed up. I see plate loss on the edges of the cap. Otherwise it looks silver.

    Porter's lighted up pics looks better, but the original pics to me looks either way, light gold or siver

    It's definitely not gold. The picture was taken earlier in the morning with natural light most likely bouncing off of the headboard which would make the hue appear differently in the photo.
    When I get back home I will take a picture of where the stamping should be from what I've read. I will also look through my Internet history and try to find where I read that they were all stamped.
    I appreciate all the help so far guys! Sure is nice to have a plethora of information coming in!

    Ok, I thought I read this somewhere else, might not be all that credible since it is just a post on this site though I guess I took it to be definitive because it came from mr-razor. It is the last post on this thread:

    Hm. Any thoughts to why mine has a j serial number but no stamp?

    What Achim was talking about there was that there were Khaki Sets that were sold to the Army directly (the "PROPERTY U.S. ARMY" ones) as well as ones that were sold through retail channels (the "MADE IN U.S.A." ones). As far as we know now, you're right that they should all be stamped and yours should be one of the former. The best I've got is what I mentioned earlier:

How sure are you that there's nothing there?
    I've seen strike errors before -- double logo imprints and the like -- so we know the process wasn't "perfect."
