Thank you TSN! I've found what I'm looking for. And due to the generous members here, I have managed to hold onto the 59.

I am adding up to $500 plus the brush below to trade for the right used Rooney Finest. I prefer unusual handles (Emillion, Urn/Polo, etc.) and Styles 1 & 3. I will also consider Olde Apothecary Shop Finest and Truefitt & Hill Finest. May also consider Classic Shaving's Morris & Forndran Rooney Finest hair batch (marked Blonde Badger).

Sticker lurking inside:

It is a Simpson 59 Best Badger sealed in the original packaging, circa 1960s:

Sticker just visible through tissue paper, still affixed to the brush:

Handle visible at bottom with butterscotch tint:

"A Simpson Badger Brush" & "Made in England" on package:

Instructions sheet visible under the tissue paper:

Size comparison with some more recent Simpsons:

Hair density visible through top of package (through the dust):

I'd like to trade for a Rooney Finest. I'm OK with a solid, well-cared for used brush. I live in Nebraska USA and prefer US trades. I would also consider Olde Apothecary Shop Finest Badger or Truefitt & Hill Finest Badger.

Thanks for looking!

A lot of us would have OPENEd the day we got it and USED it the shave after. 

Someone else will be very lucky and delighted with his restraint.

I'm not saying it looks like this underneath, but Simpson Best of that period was often pretty special indeed:
