Got these a few weeks ago.
Both boxes are sealed, everything is sealed and in new condition.
Each box contains 6 NOS Schicks with the Hydromagic lever.


Collector's items. 
They can't be found such boxes elsewhere, I guarantee you that.
I'm not going to open any box and split it.

Asking price is $275 for each box, including Priority shipping. I will ship for the same price to any country. 

They will be advertised elsewhere as well.

My friend Hans, I still enjoy the photos you occasionally post in the SOTD thread with this razor! Thanks for your kind words!

Inside each box there are 6 of these.

And a leaflet with directions on how to use the razor in Greek. These were made for the Greek market, but they were not popular back in the day, thus I've found many the last years. Last time I found them were a few years ago.
(Full disclosure: these are photos from my archive, the boxes are still sealed).

WoW! a lovely razor. i never was sure why razors needed a gender. and why would a company eliminate 85%+ of the market by saying Lady on the box just because the razor is a bright and cheerful color? 

anyway, that is probably the best shaving collectors item i have ever seen. 6 very rare razors pristine in an original sealed box at a fantastic price. a very nice collectible indeed.

too bad i am not a collector.

Thanks, my friend.

I think the answer to your question is... marketing. The only thing that makes it "different" is the handle (a bit longer and yellow colored). Yellow is a good color, thank god they're not pink or purple. Lol

Price drop to $255 for each box.

This is $42.5 per razor.

Price includes shipping which costs around 30 euros.

Thanks for looking!

I much prefer to pass a box to a fellow member than selling it on Ebay.

Wrong.

Asking price for this is $27+$7=$34.

About this:

which includes 6 of these:

...my asking price is $255 shipped, meaning $42,5 each.

If you find a similar box in such an excellent condition at a less expensive price, please let me know and I'll buy it ASAP. I bet that you won't.


Since you're interested, they are also up on Ebay as of today.

The first is $38+$8=$46 shipped
The sealed box is $315 shipped, meaning $52,5 each.

I'd like to tell you that I don't care that much if I sell them here or on Ebay. Of course, I'd like to give a fellow member the chance to own such a great NOS example and that's why I offer them at an affordable price in the BST section. 
There is also no Ebay commision here. If you compare the prices and add the Ebay commision to the total cost, my profit for each is higher on Ebay. It's my choice to offer them here, even though my profit is smaller. I'm not here for the profit. My contribution to the forum all these years can confirm that I think.

The reason I don't care if I sell or keep these is that my profit is just too small, believe it or not.
I paid 19 euros for the first and excluding the Paypal commision, the currency exchange and the shipping cost, my profit is 2,8 euros. 
About the box, I paid 28 euros for each of the 6 razors and excluding the Paypal commision, the currency exchange and the shipping cost, my profit is 4,4 euros from each.

WOW, I'm getting richer. I better buy some more stocks.

There is also another seller on Ebay that sells the exact same razor for $69,95 before shipping and is based in the US. Also, his razor is not in the same excellent condition. If you personally think I'm asking too many for a 50 yo razor that's NOS and in pristine condition, you can buy the exact same razor from that seller.

Thank you for asking this, you gave me the chance to clear up some things. If you ask any of the members that have received these, I think they'll say they're quite satisfied by the razor performance.

Cheers.

I am withdrawing one of the two.

I'd be willing to sell the other for $228 if there's interest (price on ebay is still $305 shipped). I'd rather sell it to a fellow member, because this is a highly collectible item.
