That is dirt cheap. I saw same year Blue Tip, with case, in about the same shape, with period correct unopened Blue Blades for over a hundred dollars. and it sold.

I just checked, now there's a 59.....$185.00 even though I already have two if I could get six sawbucks past the missus........

I'm confused, why are these not all sold by now, great prices, usually those Fatboys would be gone ASAP, must be a slow day...

P.S. The Red Tip is missing at least one of the endcaps, still very useable and all but some people get bothered by things like that.

Taco - I didn't notice that the end cap was missing - in fact, BOTH are missing! Thanks for pointing that out.

What are end caps and how can you tell they are missing in the photo?

Buy those razors!

I just got my Aristocrat and gold-plated Slim from Bob in the mail today. I couldn't be happier. Bob is a gentleman.

Thanks for the pack of 7 o'clocks, Bob, that you snuck into the package!

I agree. The Fatboy I grabbed from Bob is in amazing condition; and he labels it as a little better than user grade???

I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Been looking at Fatboys a long time and Bob comes along with a Gem just perfect for me.

Thanks Bob..
