    Found these two as pictured for 60 USD at an antique shop. Both look to have a small bit of uneven hone wear, but I suspect they're doable. Scales are nice and pins are tight.

    The yellow-scaled razor is stamped 'MONARCH' James G Barry Co, Chicago, Ill. Possibly pre-1890 as there's no country of origin printed, but I'm not certain that applied to solely domestic US products post-1890.

    The black scales are Solingen, printed '8 Walter Fehlenberg - HERNE. Little question this one's pre-1890. Assuming it came over during one of the German immigration waves.

    I'm going to hit them up for the feasible remainders on my next trip out :w00t:
     
  1. Very nice. Congrats on the score.
     
  2. I need to learn this as well ....and quickly ! Awesome
     
  3. Probably quicker than I did (or am)! You're practically skipping the kiddie pool! :lol:
