These two are the same physical construction except for the visible differences. They both have Canadian Patent 1937 stamped on the head
Handle color
Head color
One says Schick Injector
The other says Eversharp Schick
The good one I had pegged as a E3. Because of the Eversharp logo the black one should be a G. any help is appreciated.
Here are the photos

I think Schick took over Eversharp back in the 40s.

Yup, slantman, it was 1946. As for the Canadian Schicks, there is much to figure out. imo, they are both G types. Here's Allenby's timeline, which sadly has no info on Canadian Schicks. use Labatts as an asl and you'll be ok, eh?!?!?!

I tend to agree with you. On this page it shows the Carmel handled E's come in a black bakelite case.

Regardless, both razors give an exceptional shave. One razor has a Carmel handle and the other is Ivory.
Alas I was a Lehtbridge Brewing Pilsner fan in my drinking days. Lethbridge Brewery sold out to Molsons, but they still make the beer. The label is unchanged since 1926. How many rabbits on the Label?

Looking at the Carmel handled one, I can see a clear seam in the handle. Wasn't this a feature that distinguishes the G (seam) fission p from the E (no seam)? Can't be sure with the dark handled razor.

Here is a better photo of all 3 the only one with a seam is the Ivory color handle

Here is my theory regarding my Canadian 1937 Schicks. All three razors have a pat 1937 Canada type E head. The springs all have tabs and swing to the left and the bottom plate drops down for cleaning. I have done this with all three razors.
1. The Carmel color (Butterscotch) has a bakelite handle with no seam. On the back of the gold color head is "Schick Injector". It came in a black bakelite case.
2. The Ivory color has a seam in the handle. On the back of the gold color head is "Schick Injector". It also came in a black bakelite case.
3. The Black color has a bakelite handle with no seam. On the back of the chrome head is "Eversharp Schick". This razor did not come with a case.

It seems that the black handle razor was manufactured post 1946. It should be a "G" but alas has the head and handle of an "E". It is therefore a very rare "Eversharp Type E". I was most forunate to find this scarce piece of Schick memorabilia and even more fortunate to be able to snag it for the low low price of $4.20 (tax included). I am thinking of possibly putting for sale in the BST or even on the Bay. I should be able to recoup my expenses and possibly pay for the two week vacation I have just returned from. Wish me luck gents.

And in case you all are unaware of this, we have a pretty good Schick wiki right here.

The Canadian Schicks are not as well documented. The black handle razor is manufactured after Eversharp bought Schick, but has all of the characteristics of theType "E"
