English No.s

One of my favorite razors--English Ball Tech--is called the #24 according to the original 1958 advertisement.

Do all the English Gillettes have model no.s?

(Specifically...the 1950s Rocket FT and the Slim-Twist.)

Thanks,
Christopher
 
I have a weird Aritsocrat Jr. from Australia that was no. 48 so some Rockets did have numbers. A HD 500 was sometimes known as a no. 59. I've never seen a numbered flare tip though.
 
Does it say anything? I got one from an auction in France. Kinda disappointed. Comes with case and blade but the razor only has the Gillette diamond on the underside. Is that correct?

The English ball tech. The #24 pictured in the advert. I think that I have one with case and blades but the undersurface of the blade holder only has the Gillette diamond logo. No MADE IN ENGLAND or the like and no numbers. The diamond logo is also etched on the top of the razor.
