OK, how is this for a first sale Biggrin!

Time for some long overdue den clearing as spares, extras, duplicates etc are culled from my collection.

Prices below are excluding postage as I think it is easier to show the postage options as follows:

1. Registered Post (This provides proof of delivery and compensation of up to $A100.)
One, two, three, four or more items (the only limit is that it must be under 500g):
CONOZ - $A10
NZ -$A16
Asia Pacific - $A20
USA & Canada - $A23
UK, Europe and rest of the world - $A27

If the total weight is over 500g add $A10.

2. Airmail (This provides proof of postage only and compensation of up to $A50.)
One item selling for $A100 or less at your risk:
CONOZ - $A6.50
NZ -$A8
Asia Pacific - $A10
USA & Canada - $A13
UK, Europe and rest of the world - $A15

I hope that this is clear enough - remember I'm posting from Australia!

I've added in the airmail option for single low value purchases. It meets the PayPal sending confirmation requirement but is obviously less traceable than Registered Post.

If you want items insured for more than $A100 let me know and I'll advise of the alternatives and cost.

If you are interested in multiple items and can't afford them right now let’s talk and see what might be able to be arranged.

So, now to the actual items available and prices (all prices in $AUD plus postage):

1. British Aristocrat # 16 set: some scratches on baseplate inside head, slight brassing either end of centre bar - $A180. Pictures here.

2. US rhodium Executive set: replacement mirror, case in average condition, struggles to shut with razor in case (mirror thicker?) nice razor – $A180. Pictures here.

3. Executive Adjustable set: some clouding on silo doors, includes instructions and blade case, ‘lug’ on lid broken - $A150. Pictures here.

4. Milord set: case average condition, razor in good condition - $A80. Pictures here.

5. President set: date code Y 3 – all good condition - $A150. Pictures here.

6. Eclipse Red-Ring set: plate loss on head, note rust in combs since cleaned off, choice of cases - $A180. Pictures here.

7. British Aristocrat #66 set:
case in average condition, razor good condition - $A180. Pictures here.

8. 1960s Slim Aristocrat set: date code J4 – all in OK condition - $A100. Pictures here.

9. British Aristocrat #16 set: case not closing, brassing bent guard bar scratches inside head - $A140. Pictures here.

10. British Aristocrat #16 set: some wear on head - $A160. Pictures here.

11. Executive Adjustable set: crack in lid of case, razor in great condition, date code D 3 - $A150. Pictures here.

12. British #48 (Australian) “Aristocrat Junior” set: crack in case, brassing on wings on centre bar - $A80. Pictures here.

13. 1960s Slim Aristocrat set: date code G4, nice condition, paint intact - $A140. Pictures here.

14. British Aristocrat #66 set: case in OK condition, razor good condition - $A200. Pictures here.

15. British Aristocrat #15 set: case and razor in average condition - $A180. Pictures here. SOLD

16. British Aristocrat #21: uncased, stiff mechanism and lazy door, OK condition - $A120. Pictures here.

I believe that these prices are pretty keen and a couple of others have made similar comments but your feedback is welcome.

I should point out too that while this is my first sale thread here I'm well known around other forums and have a pretty good reputation I think.

Happy shaving

Nice listing, Mark!! Very rare that so many iconic - and great - Gillette models come up in one sale! A few years ago, I'd be negotiating to buy them all!! Best of luck.

Thanks mate.

A fair amount of time was spent getting these and in answer to another question they are the original ones I got then I got better ones or something I picked up to get a shipper or instructions or something for another set etc etc.

Hi all,

It has been pointed out to me that I was slower in lowering prices here than on another board.

My apologies for that - it was simply an oversight and not any attempt to gouge TSN members.

I trust that you will forgive the error.

Mark
