Gold Aristocrat Dating
I recently won a gold Gillette Aristocrat on e-bay.
It is a TTO, no protrusions on the center bar (to facilitate "hooking" when inserting a blade, same design as my 1940' SS), and is in near mint condition. I doubt it's been used more than a couple of times. It's packaged in a leather covered box with "Gillette Aristocrat" on inside of lid, with matching gold blade holder, and two paper wrapped Blue Blades with King Gillettes likeness on the wrappers.
My question, and I've been searching the threads for an answer, is there any way to determine date of manufacture? The bottom of the razor has no date code shown. Only the Gillette logo, "Made in USA, and Reg. U.S. Pat. Off." are visible.
Sorry, I don't have a camara to show this.
Thanks in advance,
