Hi Folks, I received this Gillette with no plating, no end caps, and cannot find a date code. Remove the photos from you replies please!

Richard,

I think it's a Sheraton.
Sheraton

These razor were taken into production in november 1937. I've seen them from 1939, but not into the 40's. My guess is they were made for 2 years and this razor is from that period, obviously. But, as you said, there is no date code, so I have no idea whether your razor is from '37, '38 or '39.

You're welcome, Richard. But please, don't take my word for it as I'm not 100% sure.
I agree that it looks alot like the Popular, Aristocrat and Senator, but the closed doors, seen from the side, have a very unique view.

The site is awesome with lots of info!
