    There is no numbers on it. It’s on the way to my mailbox. I think it will be great in my collection. 5EDD1C3F-00BC-4442-8CB6-59ED146667CF.jpeg 8E04FF19-51C0-4017-A997-440D451EE119.jpeg 07862048-9A7C-4AB5-9846-C98AA5B1F045.jpeg

    It's a very fine looking razor. The scales and the engraving looks "modern" to me which means post 1930. The "Made in Germany" does however tell me that it's made no later than 1949 when Germany offically ceased to exist until 1989. Razors made between 1945 and 1949 might not have Germany stamped on them. All this ranting means that it might have been made during the 1930's.

    I left the infantry at the end of the cold war hoping for peace in our time, but I guess I was as naive as Chamberlain once was.:001_unsur
     
  9. I concur with Arne’s(grumpy old polar bear’s) deductions as they are as sound as my own.
