Ok, it's getting a little embarrassing now. I posted earlier about some Aristocrats I found recently in the wild. I went for a walk after I posted, into a junk shop and Bingo! another Aristocrat. Just lucky, I guess.

The blade cart is missing, but the instructions are there.

Recently, I have seen these referred to as #22 or #66, but in my view this is a #16 on the basis of it having the solid base plate, marked 430030. I have an identical kit (case) with a #22 inside (the triangular-type base plate). I therefore call the razor below a #16. It weighs in at 84gm.

What did I pay? Do I really have to tell you? In US dollars: $14

There's an aristocrat with a triangular baseplate that came with that case....they call that the #22 set.
I think that precedes the #66 set where the razor has a triangular plate too.

I have an identical one to yours....in the same case as yours. Flat glossy blade tray and 430 030 on the baseplate.

I too regard it as the razor from the #16 case...the one that sits diagonally in the box.

Legendary razor, worth every bit of praise....I use it when I just want to relax and mow down a good days growth.

Great score.

Yes, indeed. I have a couple of 22s also in that case. It does get a little confusing, actually.
