I have here a beautiful Somerset-era PJ3 in Super. Has very light usage on it and comes with the original box. Tips are unbelievably soft and the knots feels a lot bigger than it actually is. Also holds a ton of lather and has the best flow-through of any Simpsons I've used.

$210 including shipping. If you'd like to see any more pictures just let me know! Thanks.



Edit: I know the current PJ3 Supers go for about $225, but I'm not sure how I'd value this as I traded for it and it's a Somerset so slightly more valuable (at least I think so).

The old lamp black was so full of character. Beautiful brush!

The Somerset era was before AE Simpson Company was sold to Progress Vulfix.

It refers to when the brush works were located in Somerset, England. Now the brush works is located in Cronkborne Isle of Man.

Looks like an incredible, quality brush! I am curious if you could add anymore comments on the tips? I know you said that they are soft and with it being super grade 3 band, but is there any scrub, cloud soft, silky? And how is the back bone? If it has superior flow through, I would be okay if it has some flop and give.

Thanks for the detailed pictures! Banes_Pubes is an excellent gentleman to deal with for anyone that has not traded or sold with him. Smile

Absolutely no scrub or scritch--pretty much just a cloud on your face. And yes, it is a bit floppy due to the high loft.

I would also be ok with doing a trade! Older Rooneys, M&Fs, Wiborgs and Simpson 2 bands all interest me Smile . Just need to be super soft with no scrub.
