    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    Sure thing, when I get back home I will try and remember to post some pictures.

    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    This is what I have found out about this Sheraton. Gold plating on the head is thin but intact. It isn't the 22 or 24 kt triple gold plating you saw on the upper tier Aristocrats but remember the Sheratons were introduced as a budget offering for an original selling price of less than a dollar...

    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    Refund issued and now it is on to the metallurgist...hopefully in the coming week as I think I have found one right here in the town I live in! Stay tuned all!

    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    Dale I'll take your word for it and no offence meant. The exchange does have some of the hallmarks though and that is why it came up. However, any transaction is probably more perception than reality and if you think you have gotten a bad deal then you have...and there's the end of the matter...

    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    You aren't the first one to suggest this. Once I get the Sheraton back I plan to contact a metallurgist in Memphis at the National Ornamental Metal Museum and I plan to ask him or her a rapid fire sequence of questions about the intricacies of plating (and particularly gold plating) the old...

    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    Since we are talking Sheratons here do any of you that have one also have a Senator? I was always struck by the fact--for me at least--how much more aggressive the Sheraton is than the Senator. I don't know why this is since the Senator appears to be nothing more than the silverplated version of...

    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    Exactly! Thank you for that post! I'm glad someone besides me posted this! I started to but I didn't think it would carry as much weight since I sold the razor. On another note I think the reason my other Sheraton does not have a copper handle is because it was a later vintage.

    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    Interesting! My other Sheraton's handle definitely isn't copper. I'm certainly going to have a closer look when I get this one back.

    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    BBrad you raise an important point about the times during which the Sheraton was produced. Comparing their plating to that of the gold Aristocrats of the forties and fifties isn't an apples to apples comparison. One previous poster also mentioned something about the handles on some early...

    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    Dale that is fine. I've been buying and selling for a while but I still learn a thing or two now and again. If it makes you feel any better the gold plating on the Sheraton was rather thin. I've heard it referred to as a flash plating although to be honest I don't think it was quite that thin...

    I received my Sheraton....Oh Oh!!!

    Thank you Insomniac. I like to think I do know a thing or two about razors. I sold this Sheraton primarily as a shaver with display potential. Dalew I'm sorry that you are unhappy but I don't believe there is any plating loss on this razor. As for the difference in color between the head and...

    Superlather paypal site is in Chinese?

    I only saw this tonight and I know it is an old thread but it touches on a subject that never goes out of date--internet security. I'm not surprised that it was Google's chrome browser the OP was using as about this time they also had vulnerabilities in their gmail servers. Vulnerabilities of...

    eBay lot with over 170 razors--congrats to whomever won

    Congratulations on the chrome toggle. You certainly don't see many of those. What was the condition like?

    Jade East

    The OP returns!! I like the Jade East cologne and aftershave. I don't sell it but I wholeheartedly and unashamedly recommend it. I also like an occasional splash from my vintage Hai Karate bottles though so bear that in mind. Actually I think the HK has unjustly vilified. It isn't so bad either.

    Yes I looked. I'm reserving judgment until you have it in hand. Do let us know!

    What are you listening to?

    If you're new to LM you should pick up her entire back catalogue. Your efforts would be well rewarded. I was introduced to her with the release of her album The Visit. Wonderfully talented artist. I'd really like to see her live.

    eBay lot with over 170 razors--congrats to whomever won

    regarding the toggle, I hate to put a damper on things but I doubt it. Judging from the murky quality of that photo I wouldn't bet the farm it's a chrome toggle. I'm thinking more a well used production one. Hope springs eternal I suppose. It will be interesting to see what the winner actually...

    What's the fuss: Irisch Moos/Tabac

    More like they love the scent. Another classic case of YMMV although I have a few rabid IM customers (thankfully) who might be less charitable in their description! :001_smile
