Gentlemen - here is one beautiful President, perhaps Gillette's most coveted line. Date code is A1, indicating manufacture in the first quarter of 1955. TTO mechanism works smoothly and evenly and the doors close tightly to create an even blade gap. Finish is nickel head and rhodium handle, which is why it is so bright and beautiful.

Two small cosmetic items, which do not affect shave quality: a small amount of brassing on the underside of the baseplate (see picture), and after you turn the TTO knob, you need to push up very gently on the knob to get the doors to open.

$50 shipped to any US address, slightly higher to international locations. If interested please PM me.

Pictures follow. Please note that pics appears to show some brassing on the handle; that is an illusion (a reflection when I took the picture) -- there is NO brassing on the handle. Guess I need to go to photo school!
