...to take a couple of pics of my latest finds.
First up, a travel set that looks to me to be unused, although there is a bit of corrosion and some ware on the brush and soap tubes where they were strapped in.
It even had instructions and a price list in the box
Next up... a trip back to 1905. I don't know if the box and razor are matched, but the date code on the razor is still quite clear.
Handle and 12 blades in 1905, $5.00.
I seem to recall that I read someplace that the average wage in 1905 was something around $200 per year.
The ladies at the antique mall I found this one at were very nice, and a little uninformed. When I showed interest they told me that this type of razor dates "all the way back to the 1940's."
I have such a great time looking at all the pics of some of your great razors, I hope my crummy digital camera and I could give you a little enjoyment.
