Chippendale engraved?

I was reading the Safety Razor of the Week sticky (excellent reading, BTW) and saw where Mr Razor mentioned in this post that the Chippendale razor is just like the New Improved, Richwood, Bostonian, etc... except it is engraved under the head.

What does he mean by this?
I know it's bad form to answer one's own posts, but I found my answer finally after digging a while.

It seems that the characteristic striping that is on the chippendale case as well as the blade case is also on the underside of the razor head. Thus, at least in this case, it's easy to tell a Chippendale razor from other New Improved razors in the absence of the box.

Below is a photo of the bottom side of the head. The whole post is here.
