Picked up an interesting razor set today..although I'm not sure if its a matching set..
The case has a fair amount of wear to the plating
I was trying to match this case on Mr Razors site and other Google'd sites but the latch is different than the other cases of this style
The bottom has the patent info
Missing the blade case
No markings on the bottom plate
The left left pin is shorter than the right...odd
Serial number...the "9" at the end looks like an after thought
Slight plate loss on the edges of the top plate
Side by side with a 1918 Army razor,,,you can really see the short pin and that the razor total length is shorter
I did read a thread on a similar razor
Mine also has that "crack" at the end of the handle
I am curious as to whether it belongs in the case.
The handle from the 1918 is longer and does not fit good in the slot of the case.
The wear in the case fits the smooth ball perfectly, if it doesnt belong, it seems to of lived in this case for along time.
I assume dating this odd Canadian razor is nearly impossible.
There was a small sticker on the bottom of the case that someone had written "c 1910"
I see Mr Razor dates this style to 1910/11
Is it possible that it could date to the pre-diamond years?
Thanks for any info you can supply \
