Selling Aristocrat Junior in Excellent condition. Asking $55 shipped CONUS PENDING FUNDS

Open to trades- I have been eyeing an ATT R2 or M2. Head only is OK. Would be open to other trades as well, especially SS razors, handles etc. Can add $ to even things out. 

No soaps as I have too many. (like most here)

No plate loss
No pitting
No deep scratches
Nice deep shine
TTO opens and closes smoothly- as an English TTO should

When I received this razor, the last 1/4 turn before fully opening was a tiny bit stiff. Nothing bad or concerning, but I know English TTOs can be very smooth. Much smoother than US made Gillettes.  I soaked it in Scrubbing Bubbles and then in a mild dish detergent. This took care stiffness. I opened and closed it 50 times and I felt a tiny, tiny bit of residual stiffness. If this was a US Gillette it would be normal (it was that faint). I again soaked it in SB and dish detergent. Due to the Excellent plating condition, I have no doubt that the stiffness is due to a little soap scum in the TTO mechanism and not something mechanical. I do not dare attempt to take it apart to clean. All I did was soak the razor. 

Before this listing I opened and closed the TTO fully 50 times and did not feel any stiffness at all. It was smooth just like a English Gillette should be. This info is probably too much, and other sellers might not even disclose this as the TTO mechanism is smooth. I just want to share this just in case the buyer feels this going forward. There might be a little soap scum left in the TTO that my 2 soakings did not fully dissolve. 

Open to trades/trades plus $ either way.

This is about half of what these usually go for, shouldn't last long!

Great looking razor. Literally just got one a week ago or I'd be looking to get yours. I love the weight of it. If anyones even thinking of one they should jump on it.

A very good price indeed for one of the best shaving tools available that money can buy. Pity I am not in the US to take advantage of this very generous offer. Very sweet indeed. GLWTS
