This Aristocrat was also found recently in the wild. It is aligned perfectly, and shaves just like a mint-condition razor, but shows the wear of time. I cleaned it all up as best I could, but you can make out what I call 'frosting' in the Rhodium plating. The case is square, closes properly, but is mottled. It's significantly better in the photo that what it was like sitting on a table at a bric-a-brac market.

I have better examples of exactly this model, but I don't mind the signs of ageing in the least. It hails from 1948, and, well, we should respect our elders, shouldn't we? Wink

What did I pay? In US dollars: $10. Yep.

Nice find, I certainly do mind the signs of time in a vintage razor for a daily driver.
