Clear out - English Aristocrats and more

Not open for further replies.
Hi everyone, it's time for a decent clean out (or so I've been told).
I'll post the relevant details here, and then followup with photos of individual items.
First off - I'm in New Zealand, I post worldwide - it'll be $15 no matter how much you buy. I'd prefer the fewer trips o the post office as I can manage.
I'm looking to sell, I have too many razors as it is. But there's a potential for trades too. I don't want straights, but I would consider stainless DE or SE razor or handle. Unlikely to want another brush (but maybe for the right one). Potential for soaps, but you'd have to cover the cost to get them to me.
Prices are firm (ish) right now, but will get less firm tomorrow and the next day and so on. So don't be afraid to try me.
Any questions please ask.
I'll try to be as critical (maybe overly so) as possible in my description.
All prices USD

Righto, the razors.
Here's what I have:

(more photos will follow).

1) Aristocrat number one. $130
This is a cased #21.
Case is tired, won't stay open on it own.
Rhodium plating good, very minor loss to plating on knurling. Bit more loss on handle nearest head. Opens closes nicely, one door very slightly lazy. Bit of plate loss to centre bar and inside. Silo doors shiny, very slight pock marks.

2) Aristocrat number two. $160
Another cased #21. But nicer than the other one.
Case ok, but aged.
Rhodium plating very very shiny. Mechanically sound. Only plate loss on wings on centre bar. Lovely piece, very loathe to sell.

3) Aristocrat number three. $120
Cased #22 (third gen). Flat base plate, notched centre bar
Case ok but aged. Has 5x wilkinson blades. No gauruntees on the blades.
Razor rhodium, some loss on knurling (not systemic, but on the individual knurls if that makes sense). Doors lazy, but can be opened fully with finger. Shiny head.

4) Coronation tech. $65
Crown on outside of the case a bit worn. Cardboard insert good, some water damage and dirt on it. Aluminium handle has a few bits of corrosion on knurling (if you get the light right)

5) Aristocrat Junior $80
Cased - case is slightly crooked from being squashed, aged.
Lovely shiny razor. Diamond base plate. Patent pending. Mirror finish on doors. Beautiful piece.

6) Cased English Long Comb New $20.
Case old and ugly.
Razor head needs a replate - looks like its lived most of its life upside down in a shaving mug.
Teeth mostly straight (end ones all bent in a little)
Patent numbers on handle.

7) Gem Bathroom Set $35
Made in England.
Unused.
Looks like aluminium handle
Still attached to the green plastic holder - never removed.

8) Red tip Rocket $120
Rarely seen English made red tip rocket. Much much rarer than the common US red tip superspeed, or the uncommon English red tip superspeed. The red tip rockets are very tricky to find.
Lovely piece. Some loss of paint to tip.
Mechinically great. Beautiful and shiny.
Very cool razor. Only selling because I don't need two (or so I'm told)

9)Uncased English Long Comb new $30
Twin pin head
Plate loss to handle. Head plating intact
Teeth all straight. Nice and shiny.

10) Penn $5
Single edge, propitiatory blades (of which I have none)
Rear of head states "AC Penn Inc. New York USA Pat Apl'd For"

11) Mark Cross $5
Single edge, propitiatory blades (of which I have none)
Pat Nov 19 1912
Appears to be silver plated
