Hi chaps

Picked up this cute little yellow Gillette display case on the weekend. I'd say definitely came at the same time as the Monobloc HD.

I fitted a blue-cased HD in the back section of the case, and it fits snugly, however, the back is stamped "Ce ramasse-monnaie est", so it may have contained a little box to pop in your change and pick up blades. There was a little cart of blades left in there, so I took a snap of them, too Wink

There are scratches, etc, and general wear and tear but it came up nicely as you can see. I put my current rotation Aristocrat on the front shelf part to provide scale, and also to cover the little burn mark where the Frenchman left one of his Gauloises Wink

I don't really collect these things, but what's a man to do?

Enjoy Smile

Cheaply, at a kind of junk fair here in Sydney. Like I said, not really the kind of thing I search for but I had to pick it up. Nowhere to put it and use it, really.
