Non-gold plated Gillette Aristocrat 1934?

The ‘34 is a really special razor. At the time, it was advertised as being made ‘to watchmakers’ standards.’ The slim head design makes it a very nimble TTO. The ‘36 is a great shaver, just a tad less nimble.
I agree wholeheartedly with Dan's assessment of the two razors. The replate devalues the razor from a collectors standpoint, but you have a wonderful razor to use & enjoy! And with the replating, it should provide quality shaves for many decades to come. Congratulations on your acquisition, sir!

In fact I like it original and replating feels like cheating to me. Just my own opinion. I think I will let the razor go to hands appreciating it more than I do. I didn't use it so far... Not even once.

I can understand your thinking. You shouldn't have any trouble selling it on the BST. You might even want to link this thread to your BST listing.
