I just picked up a Gillette Slim adjustable in mint condition with the date code D1, which would make it 1958. I thought the Gillette Slim Adjustable came out in the 1960s. Was Gillette making the Fatboy and Slim at the same time?

That's contrary to what I recall, the Slim coming after the Fatboy .. might you have pictures?

I misread the date code. It’s U1, making it 1974. Nice razor, though.

God, those letters are small and hard to make out. It’s J1, which makes it 1964. Gillette stopped making the Slim in 1968.
