I added the pic to the B&B/Elmerwood's #501144 razor. ( I cropped it to make it smaller) to the WIKI pageThe new wiki page Gillette_Canada_Dating_Information up to date now, I think.
Porter, if you can spare some time I would be delighted to have your expertise on assigning probable dates to the rows in the Old Type table. Ideally the rows in the table should be ordered by probable year. We could add a year column if that would help, and I am open to revising or extending the table in any way that makes sense.
