To kill some time this afternoon, I wandered around an antique mall near my house (north of Toronto) with my baby daughter. There were quite a few razors to be had, a handful of straights, a bunch of Ever-ready's in cases and the odd Gillette.
I picked up a few out of interest, perhaps to actually shave with or to PIF later on - none with any real collector value I wouldn't think since I didn't get any that had fancy cases or anything.
1) Gillette Tech - same markings as my WWII Canadian Khaki sets. Made in Canada, PAT.CANADA and 1932 marked on it along with the Gillette diamond logo. Pretty good shape now but with some scrubbing bubbles and a once over with a toothbrush this will be in great shape.
2) Gillette British Rocket Flare Tip - I have a soft spot for British Flare Tips so I picked this one up even though the jaws or TTO may be not working properly. Marked with Made in England, BRIT.PAT 694093 and the Gillette diamond logo. It also has J2 on the underside - what year would this one be??
3) Gillette British Rocket - I could use some help identifying this further but I think it is a Rocket. It is in fantastic shape. Marked with Made in England and the Gillette diamond logo on the underside and inside only has PATENT PENDING. Is this a Rocket and what year would this one have been made??
Thanks for any help with the identifications and sorry, no pics yet but I will p0rn them when I get them cleaned ...
