That's a good price.  I'd be all over it if it were the silver version but I'm not fond of gold tone metal.  Good luck!

Judging by the handle it looks like the head is just missing some plating. These old types shave like a dream. I have I believe a 1910, I wouldn't sell it personally. My handle looks quite similar also, very nice bottom heft to it

The handle looks silver and the head/plate look like they used to be silver, but the case and bank look gold.

I've been hunting for a cased silver ABC (Empire, Flower or Scroll) in good shape for months now.  The handle looks good and the case is way above average in terms of what I've seen before.  If I had a source for plating I'd buy it, but I don't.

I believe its the lighting, but can't be sure. I'm lucky to have found mine, exactly as you describe

Hasn't been marked sold, but it has been bought and paid for.  I always get nervous when something I buy isn't marked sold quickly.  He's probably busy with other stuff.

Congrats.  That's one of the best looking cases I've seen, inside and out.
