Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone would be able to give me some information on this razor.  Any ideas as to how many were produced?  I've been trying to find information online but I can't find much.

I bought this several years ago and have not used it at all.  Just a very nice looking razor.
Thank you.

Patrick

They certainly aren't as common as the chrome plated version but not something that is rare either.  The gold plating is thin and so one in good shape can fetch higher prices.  I have a near mint version in the Hoffritz leather case and it is my third time owning one.  The other two weren't in nearly as good of condition.  Yours looks to be a late model as the dot and numbers are unpainted and it is in the modern Progress case (assuming that is original to the razor).  They are great razors to shave with, but as mentioned you should be very careful in use and stay very mild with any cleaning solutions used to maintain it.
