Want to buy a mint or re-plated Aristocrat (not gold). Razor only ok, do not need set.
Thanks

It would need to be a replated razor then, as Aristocrats were gold by definition.

There were similar razors, such as the Diplomat, that weren't gold.

I'm certainly open to learning something new.

Are those US or UK Aristocrats?
(I know less about the UK variants. Every Aristocrat that I am aware of from the US has been gold-plated - even the Aristocrat Adjustable, which was just a gold-plated Slim Adjustable.)

Do any of them fall within the 1946 - 1950 time period specified by the the original poster?
(This question is just for additional information, not to question your point that they are all rhodium-plated.)

Thanks -

I believe they were all UK. The #21 & #16 both were from 1948. The #66 I just know is "50's". The #22 is 1949. I don't know specifically the others offhand. I suppose one of the reasons why I know this is because the #66 mint in case, is my dream razor. Hope I helped, didn't mean to come off snobby at all.
