Okay. it was actually in a basement. I was driving back home and decided to just drive around and try to find this estate sale that was being advertise. Never found it but I did find a basement sale. First thing I see on the table is shaving stuff. 4 or 5 straight razors, a hone, a stropper for DE blades, a bunch of GEM’s and Schick Injectors, a couple of Gillettes, a vintage puck of Williams mug soap, some old Mennen and Palmolive shaving cream (vintage and used) and some brushes. Did some haggling and got a very nice, excellent condition Ever~ready shovel head with worn case, A GEM 1912 gold tone with ornate handle and a excellent condition (maybe never used as there was no scratch from the swivel thing until I did it) Schick Injector Type E-2 Possibly the deluxe model (pat 1806087).
These are after a light cleaning. Not pictured is the vintage (no bar code) puck of Williams Mug Soap. I got all 4 items for 28 dollars.
The man said I could have it all for $200 (razors) but I’m not a collector or re-seller and I only wanted one of each that I did not have. Wish I knew what grit that hone was.. he only wanted 3 dollars.
