I know this should be a score,but I figured the straight shaver guys might appreciate them located here in case they miss the score thread
The first lot I snagged because of the mint Friodur Inox of course. Never been honed from what I can tell. The W&B is very nice and the scales ( original?) has an imprint of a man holding a Trident and the Jaques LeCoultre AuSentier is a nice addition. All 3 for $40.00
The second lot ($35.00 for all 3) consists of a Union Razor Works,NY single pin. a Worcester and a 1912 Jos. Hollenger Barbers Leader

Lot #3 has a " The Winner" razor, an unmarked one with very interesting sculptural lines to it, and the reason I picked this lot was for the F.Reynolds with "The Old English Razor" scales which will clean up nicely. 3 for $30.00 was a good price.

Lot #4 has a Boker triple pin, A Blue Steel 'Independent' B&B supply Ohio that has interesting heat coloration on the shaft which shows blues/purple/green back to the tang and the reason of course for this lot was the Ek Sel which I believe is fairly rare that has very nice cracked ice scales laminated over translucent deep orange. $35.00 for the 3.

And the last single piece I couldn't leave behind is a W.R.Case & Sons Bradford Pa. with beautiful butterscotch colored scales in excellent condition. The blade will clean up nicely I think. This one set me back $40.00. But I had to have it.

There are more than I can buy! Oh, the pickings are great. Thankfully I've never had to do the ebay thing.

You are very fortunate, I know of four guys in our little area each with over 1500 razors. Pickin's here are slim to transparent.
Keep them coming, a good thing for future generations!

Well this is perfect. I am in Illinois conveniently between Mark and Richard. My angle for Pennsylvania is probably Hershey as I have a sweet tooth. As for Wisconsin, we need to see the fall colors - NOW! Will find a trailer to pull behind the truck and head out post haste!Biggrin

Let me save you a trip. The fall colors are gone. Sandy made sure of that. So you can stay home and if I find any more razors I'll be sure to let you know. I'll even post them so you can see what I found. Hehehehe....

Oh yeah,, this was part of the mix as well. Just forgot to post it. I still collect DE stuff as well, wrong spot, but still neat.

Are these from estate sales or antique stores in your area? You did better than very well. Outstanding and amazing. These are the prices that should be the norm, in my way of thinking.

Wish I lived in an old city. Sad

Arizona's population exploded recently and so the number of antiques per person is quite small. I'd imagine the same is true of California.

It's surprising where and when I find them. I've developed a network of sources to find razors. Mostly because I hate paying a lot for them and refuse to pay ebay prices. Many times dealers etc. call me to show me what they've found. Estate sales, antique dealers, etc. I found my Dbl. Duck Goldedge, mint , in the box at a used book store along with a beautiful Robeson Shur-edge, both for $35.00. You just never know.And you don't have to live in an old city.

It was brought to my attention that one of my Case razors isn't an Ek-Seb,, but an Ek-Sel. Which makes sense as it's an abbreviation of Excellent ,, or possibly Excel. Just the way the loop connects the E with the L it appeared to be a lower case B.
Also ,, the man with the trident on the scales of the W&B isn't what my eyes thought. It's the devil with a pitch fork!
I think I need new glasses!
Here is a close up of these pieces showing both Case razors and the W&B logo on the scales.
Funny,, it's easier to see in the photos than by eye.But ignoring my flub,, they're still cool razors that will clean up just fine.
