1953 Mint Gillette President Razor w Blade Y2

1953 Mint Gillette President Razor w Blade Y2 Pictures

  Here for your consideration is a 1953 Mint Gillette President double edge safety razor. Its date code is Y2, meaning it was made in the second quarter of 1953. These razors were made 1951-53. It has a one-piece twist to open (TTO) design. It is fully plated, nickel on the head and rhodium on the handle.  This razor is in Mint Condition, with no plate loss anywhere on the razor. The underside of the head, top, says "REG U.S. / PAT. OFF. / [date code]," and the underside, bottom, says "[Gillette diamond logo] / MADE IN U.S.A." The razor's weight is 66 g. Also included is a Gillette Blue Blade unopened and still in the Original envelope.

  The handle is fully knurled, including the band above the TTO knob. Aesthetically it is very similar to the Diplomat, but with nickel/rhodium instead of gold, representing the high end of this razor family. It is a solid and relatively heavy razor, and its shaving aggressiveness is similar to that of a Red Tip Super Speed. It is perfect for the combination of heavy beard and sensitive skin. Just put in your favorite blade and try it for yourself.

  The weight is 66 grams.  It is absolutely gorgeous, extremely clean and shiny, without any other defects . Mechanically it is perfect, with the doors opening and closing smoothly and firmly. The razor has been sterilized antibacterial soap and water and polished to the high seen that can be seen in all the pictures. Presidents are quite rare, and ones in this condition are extremely difficult to find.  Please be sure to look at all the pictures as they are an accurate representation of this great collectible razor, also see the pictures that I have posted on YouTube.
