Gentlemen - here is one beautiful President, perhaps Gillette's most coveted line. Date code is A1. TTO mechanism works smoothly and evenly and the doors create an even blade gap. I wasn't sure whether the finish was nickel or rhodium finish, and then member "Sunflake" was kind enough to educate me that it is both -- nickel head and rhodium handle. That explains why it is so bright and beautiful.

Two small cosmetic items
  • a small amount of brassing on the underside of the baseplate (see picture), and
  • after you turn the TTO knob, you need to push up very gently on the knob to get the doors to open.
  • These cosmetic items do not affect the razor's function.

$50 shipped to any US address, slightly higher to international locations. If interested please PM me.

Pictures follow. Please note that the third pic appears to show some brassing on the handle; that is an illusion -- perhaps a reflection when I took the picture -- but there is NO brassing on the handle.

Well you are correct on both counts, the head is Nickel and the handle under the collar is Rhodium. That's why most of the handle is brighter and more silver. Love mine.

Thanks to Sunflake's comment, I have fixed the listing to indicate nickel head and rhodium handle. We can all learn from one another, eh?
