Gem micromatic in a pretty bad condition
GEM Micromatic saftey bar.
Wow that's a messy micromatic. But it's brass, so go at it for a while with polish and it should come out looking great.

She wants $20 for it.
Don't do it.
Letterk still has one for sale for 10$ shipped and I bought the other one and it looked like brand new. But it is open comb vs safety bar.
Yomuppet has two, one of them is with safety bar for 5$ shipped:
Both are in better condition than the one you are showing.

I am no expert; but $20 seem a rather steep for that one.
Unless someone else chimes in that it is exceedingly rare I would either pass or barter them way down; say $2...

I paid $5 for mine with a case and blade holder. That was probably too much. I don't like using it. I just wanted to have one and give it a try.Originally Posted by TakeTheCann0lis
Try checking out antique stores, rummage sales and second hand stores. I just bought a 1965 Gillette adjustable w/ case for my son at an antique store for $5.
Relax...Take it easy...Enjoy the lather.
