Interesting find this weekend at an estate sale. While rummaging through the garage, I find a box of six NOS 
Straights for H. Geo. Henry, Columbia, Pa.  Can't find any info on Henry.  Guessing a hardware store or barber supply company. 
All are still wrapped in wax paper. Opened one for pictures.
Tripled pinned,bolsters, jimbs and inlay all add up for a great look. Blades are 5/8 with full hollow grind.
Will take the unwrapped razor out for a test ride in the near future.

Nice find you should be able to move them on for a fare profit, try Revisor they will buy NOS razors.
