The raror is in perfect condition as you can see, cleaned and polished!
The case has seen better days, but opens and closes with no problem at all, it works great.
The price is 145$, including worldwide shipping.

Some information.

It it the non- coronation model of 1955, not the coronation which is aluminium made and produced in honour of Queen Elizabeth of England.
This one weighs 68g and it's nickel plated.
Also, it's the "PATENT PENDING" model, made in England. There are no numbers inside the head of the razor.
The doors are not lazy and work perfectly.
Actually, it's rarer than I thought, just yesterday one sold for 250$ on ebay.
Maybe it's better to keep it in my small vintage collection... I'll think about it if there is no interest. 
I can't drop the price, sorry.

Thanks, Hector!

I love the knurling of the handle. 
Nowadays, there are many artisan handle makers who try to copy these handle styles. But, you can't beat the original Gillette knurling! That's my opinion.
