    Default 3 razor find!

    Hey guys! Was at my usual source today and scored 3 razors.

    First is a non gold tuckaway set 1920 :)

    The next is a Gillette new ball tech, like the one in my other thread.

    And the third looks like a Gillette old from my knowledge.

    Pics to come soon :)

    It looks more like an Old Type head on a British NEW handle.

    It's most certainly not a single ring.

    It could just be that the Old Type head fits on the ball end handle, and the NEW head fits in on the handle that has the Old Type head. Those are three great razors.

    Good theory although i know they aren't swapped as the ball tech is the gold/brass color.
