For your consideration is an unusual 1953/1954 Gillette #58 set. This razor is marked 'Patent Pending' which dates it to 1953/54 but this is not the usual 34g aluminium version, instead this is the rarer 68g nickel plated version. The later 1955 #58 set was produced exclusively in nickel plate and was marked with the patent number 694093 and not marked 'patent pending' as is the case with this earlier example. The razor is in really excellent condition with no plate loss or rubbing at all. The TTO mechanism is smooth and the doors open evenly and fully as they should. The case is solid and in reasonable condition with some minor exterior staining, the lining is good with some staining to the lid lining as shown. The blade bank is missing but is easily replaced. The razor set can be seen in the aluminium form at Mr.Razor here: https://mr-razor.com/Rasierer/One-Piece solid guard bar/1953 (Y1) No58 aluminum.JPG

I am asking £100 Paypal G&S including insured delivery to a UK mailing address but I am happy to discuss postage to the EU, US, and rest of the world if there is interest. I am not an expert here but I believe I have described this razor correctly; if not then I am ready and happy to be corrected. If I am well wide of the mark in terms of the price then please let me know and I will adjust accordingly.

I could be interested in a working out a trade for a Simpson Manchurian brush of no more than 24mm in a non ivory handle. If you have any questions or need more images then please let me know. Thank you, Richard
 
Bump - price drop - £75 including insured delivery to a UK address. Would consider a trade for a Gillette Goodwill 162 or 164. 👍

Hi - many apologies but as luck would have it, at the time of your enquiry I was awaiting confirmation of firm commitment to purchase from another B&B member. That commitment has now been confirmed so the razor is sold subject to funds being received. Thanks again and sorry for not updating the thread sooner. 👍
