I recently bought this as a lot from an estate sale - please help in identifying this model because the case is rough and faded. Thanks

Any markings underneath the head...?

Loks like a NEW Norfolk, or perhaps a NEW Special

Gillette NEW (long comb it appears) with a "bar" handle. Not a Norfolk as I believe it was only with the short bar handle. The NEW is a great shaver and I use one regularly. Congrats!

Old Gillettes can always be replated and there's not much nicer for a New than a dip in nickel or rhodium

Dave Glynn in the UK does a good job and he's not expensive.

I haven't used their services, but others have praised the results of replating done by Razor Emporium:
