Schick Golden 500

Here is a cool lot of injectors I got. The 500 looks like it was never used, anyone know when this razor was made?

Nicew score! The Golden 500 was made at some point between 1958 and 1964. It is one of my favorite injector models.

This quote;

"After the 1930's, Schick rarely produced de luxe versions of their razors like Gillette and others did. Some notable exceptions: the gold plated and gold filled handles released by Eversharp in 1946 and 1947, the up-scale "Golden 500" model released in the early 1960's, and the International Silver version with the "Paul Revere" tableware handle that appeared in the early 1970's."

They are a good razor. I'm not a huge fan of the Schick injectors but I make an exception for these. They shave very well. I've managed to pick up a white one and a black one.
 
I got one of these Golden 500's with a black handle and a PAL adjustable in a lot I won last week. They still have used blades in them :scared: and look in pristine condition. It's good to know they are quality razors :001_smile as I was thinking of re-selling them. Never used an injector before and didn't purchase what I did for the injectors! The fact that you can't buy injector blades in a store and have to get them online really sucks!! That white handle yours has looks better than the black one on mine. It reminds me of my desert sand w/ gold pickguard Fender Duo Sonic. Beautiful colors that really blend so well! I just checked completed eBay listings for the Schick 500 razors and prices vary so much. Ones with cases are up to $70 but regular used ones can be had for $5-$10 it looks like but they none of them look like new and they have plating loss. There's also a Schick Hydro-Matic 500 injector razor and just a regular 500 it looks like. Not sure of the difference :confused1. Off to Amazon to check out injector blades I guess! :wink2:
