Anyone have any info on this Slim case. European market version? The "lid" slides up and down like a roll top desk.

Ok, now I have to ask. Stan, where do you find all these rare Slim sets? They look like brand new. These are collectors' pieces.

Can't reveal sources. However, sometimes it is shop or a flea market etc. The extra work is cleaning and polishing and trying to get the razors pedigree correct. Most of what I run across I can easy identity but when I pick up something like this I like to ask for assistance.

That is really cool.  I wish I could help, but I've never seen a case like that.  It will make a great addition to you r collection since its so unique.

Here is a 1967 German set.  The case color is different, but the same style.  Does it have the instructions with it?

Given that the language on the blade pack is all in English, I would guess it was a European package from the late 60's for somewhere in the UK.

I do not have the original instructions but here is a photo of what remains of a sticker on the back. Thoughts?

I didn't ask for sources. No one reveals them and it's totally understandable.

Some are suggesting it is a French set.

No problem. Many are surprised to learn that I have no collection. I have always sold everything I have ever bought. I have had the opportunity to try a lot of vintage razors!

I saw a red case (if I remember correctly) variant just like this within the last few months that was being sold by a french seller; he was claiming it to be a French market razor. Maybe the overall packaging design was broadly European? That's an absolutely gorgeous piece  Thumbsup
