Gents,

I love the vintage Gillette TTOs, and I have been on a tear buying collector grade Aristocrats for my sons for when they get older, and nice users for me.  During my journey I have acquired these Gillette Presidents...one is an excellent user grade shaver, and one is in excellent collector grade condition.

Shaving with El Presidente is a real joy, and a great balance between efficiency and smoothness...plus the rhodium and knurling are fantastic!

Enjoy!

Thanks for the nice comments gents! I am glad that yours are getting some use! As for me, I am going to use mine tomorrow or the next day depending on when the next shave is!

Y2 is the date code on both, which I think is the second quarter of 1953.

Thanks! I took a shot on the one that is collector grade, and got an incredible deal! I may need to have another son...otherwise I don’t know what I am gonna do with it.

Perhaps gift it it to a future son-in-law!

I think that the Presidents were all made in 1953?
