I think this is true. Wilkinson Sticky was thought to be rare 10 years ago and sold more than $150 but it is quite common. and the same goes for Barbasol Floating head, Eclipse Red Ring, Leresche 77 and Kirby Beard,etc.
True, I've seen a lot of caseless Barbasol FT's and Eclipse Red Rings in decent condition going for around or less than $100. I regret not getting a Barbasol FT when I had the chance, but at that moment I was only collecting Gillette razors and I didn't really care for anything else.
All of those razors are uncommon at best, but not rare. The definition of what a rare razor is for most people is not even remotely true. For instance, some folks still believe that razors like the Gillette TTO Aristocrats both US and British, Ranger Tech, F4-D1 Toggle, President, Single Ring, Fatboy and countless other razors are ''rare'' and that is one of the reason why they get more attention and the prices go up. While some of these rares are indeed more special than others and for one or another reason are more desirable and more expensive, not a single one of them is rare and that goes even if they are with cases.
