These are just some pictures I had to hand. Just a few of what I have but it's a a start. The Red Tip and the Blue Tip are birth year and quarter in close to mint, the T.V. Special was my dad's and I also have my grandfather's. There's a few more, a Gold 1940's Aristocrat, a nickel Fat handle Tech etc, etc.

Thanks.  Before I send a razor to Chris, I prep the top cap myself using progressively finer grits of sandpaper to remove all the scratches/blemishes that have accumulated over the years.  I even go as far as using MicroMesh sanding cloths that I have for polishing out model car paint jobs.   MicroMesh grits start at 3200 and progress through 3600,4000,6000,8000,and 12,000.  I try to get the top cap as mirror perfect as the Muhle R89 that I used to have.  One caveat about doing your own prep is to definitely not use any petroleum based polishes such as Flitz or Peek.  Only sandpapers or like abrasives.  "Polishes" will leave behind a residue that impregnates itself into the pores of the metal.    It can cause adhesion problems for the plating which only shows up later (don't ask how I learned this).  More importantly, it contaminates Chris's plating solution and he has to through it out.  The rest of the razor such as the handle and base plate I leave to him as he always comes through for me with first class top notch service and results as you can see.

I have every type of razor made by Gillette in 1965 - most of them are 4th quarter - I was born in December ... then I put in a piece of 1965 Wedgwood and a US Mint set

and the the hardest to get was the Lady in gold  (I'm still trying to find out what cases the pink lady and the gold lady were sold in ... where they also in the light blue plastic?)
