Ask Obie as he had one for sale a little while ago.

From what I understand Puma's were suppose to be good shavers but, they are hard to find.

From the little I know about Puma SRs, they were one of the top brands from Solingen, you can see some info here.
I just don't know that model in particular, sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Ask manah on straightrazorplace. He knows his razor history. I've never seen that model Puma, either.

Ah man, I think you got ripped off. Those Pumas are all hype ;-).

I have a few Pumas and they are fantastic razors. Very widely regarded as a high quality Solingen blade.
I haven't noticed the shoulder-less 69 before. It's a beaut especially with the etch still intact. It's stamped as a 6/8 which is sweet b/c the 5/8s are seemingly much easier to find. I prefer at least a 6/8 or larger blade. Let me know if it doesn't work for you. I will gladly take it off your hands!

As others have said, Obie would be a good resource and look around SRP. You have found yourself what seems to be a real gem my friend.
Enjoy!

I no longer have my Puma, as I needed to finance the publication of my book. Puma is a highly coveted German name. Great steel and overall quality were the hallmarks of this fine razor. Yes, my friend Alex (Manah) at SRP is quite a historian and should be able to give the particulars on this razor.
