Offered are some of the justly famous, vintage Personna 74 double edge blades. 

First are 100 individually wrapped ones, in lots of 10 blades for $35 shipped CONUS. Deduct $2 for combined shipping with each additional lot. All SOLD

Next are blades sealed on their original cards, labeled Super Platinum Chrome but with the 'open' arrows on the blades indicating that they are exactly the same as the labeled P74s. (Blades with 'closed' arrows, sometimes offered, are not quite the same quality.) There are 100 of these also, offered in lots of 10 blades for $25 shipped or a 20-pack for $50. Once again, deduct $2 from the total for each additional set purchased. Withdrawn

Hi:

I bought the first lot of ten blades from you on the bay.  LOL.



I would love to buy the 20 Personna Super Platinum Chrome on the bottom right; the last one.  

Can you name a fair price?

The 20-pack in the lower right of the image has sold.

I have been asked whether the imprinted arrows on the blades of the other 20-packs and the 10-pack are actually the 'open' type or are the 'closed' ones of the slightly lower quality SPC blades. To my eyes they are the 'open' type, although somewhat smaller in size. Here are close-up pictures of one of the 20-packs:

And here are pictures of the 10-pack:

Here are a couple images from the internet of blades with the 'closed' arrows to illustrate the difference:

And a question has been raised about whether or not the blades I am offering are really the same as the P74s. All I can say is that absence of proof is not the same as proof of absence. In my experience, and that of some other experienced and knowledgeable shavers, the 'open' arrow blades I am offering shave exactly the same as the P74 blades. If you doubt my opinion or honesty or feel a need for more proof before purchasing, then the answer is simple: just don't buy them.

I arrived at the same conclusion some time ago. While I have plenty of these I normally would jump at the chance for more and even more so for the London Bridges you're also offering but my getting my Gold Aristocrat refinished put me over my shaving budget. I must say to anyone wondering, if it comes from John's den it's genuine and the best.

I’m so tempted to try vintage blades, but do I really need another rabbit hole?
