I list today my spare Barbasol Floating Head, 2 piece razor, I purchased this with the intent to replate but never got around to it and its never been touched since receiving it. (other than the surface clean with a microfiber cloth). The knob turns very smoothly and can be turned tight and nothing else moves on the razor. You can see brassing all along the razor, this will not impact its use if you choose to use it as is or it would make a beautiful candidate to replated.

This is obviously an old razor, the only mark I can see is a small line on the top cap which you can feel but will undoubtedly buff smooth if replated. I also noticed, which I never saw before the safety bar is ever so slightly not straight on one side, I never saw as I was planning on having it replated which they may be able to fix or one of the handier of our forum members may be able to do. 

This is considered a heavy razor (approx 3.1oz, Top of razor to bottom of knob, 3.75"), its made from brass and plated. The knurling is still very grippy and has not smoothed out over the course of time as to some others I've had in hand. The engraved "Barbasol" just above the turning knob is quite pronounced as well, I didn't know that was what is engraved till I received this one as my copy I can barely make it out. 

$100USD ==>  $90USD == > $79 USD shipped USPS, last push to move it onward
As always, thanks for looking fellow Nookers!
