Dates in Production: 1953-1955
Type: DE, TTO
Description: The handle of the President is Rhodium plated while the head is nickel plated, per this discussion. Fully knurled handled, though some rarer variations sport a smooth, unknurled band above the TTO knob. These variations are thought to be Aristocrat handles that were repurposed/recycled when producing Presidents.
Notes of Interest: With the exception of the rarer variations mentioned above, the President is aesthetically similar to the Diplomat; the only difference between the two is the plating: President in nickel, Diplomat in gold.
