For $25 today, I picked up an Ever Ready 1000 Pure Badger Set in Rubber brush. The knot is in perfect shape and looks more like silvertip to me. Very clean. The handle has a ?melted area on the side and bottom.

Also, I got a German made folding (travel) shave kit with mirror and shave cup and a complete but poor shape Rolls Razor.

I think I got a very good deal. I intend to clean the brush, even though it looks very clean already.

Sorry, I can't post images. I uploaded to the postimage site, but don't know how to add it to the thread.

Here are the photos, finally. I tried to lather with the Ever Ready today and it was a complete flop, literally. No backbone at all. I was wrong. I had to use another brush. Thanks Ben for the image help.

That's a really nice looking brush! Is it dense?

Yes, it is dense. I don't if this is true of brushes from that era, but there is wood or rubber piece sticking up for about 3/8 inches in the center of the knot. Even being dense, it is totally floppy.

I really like the handle even with a small melting flaw. Maybe I'll get it re-knotted.

That is common with those knots. The "glue/plaster/rubber" bump tries to compensate for the knot configuration. I have a similar NOS Rubberset that has this issue as well.
