    They all function and look like they will clean up well.

    Can you help me identify?

    Superspeed, fat handle tech old type open comb frankenrazor, forty's superspeed, and an aristocrat (either pre 47 no notch, or 48/49 with blade grabbing notch)
    Nice score

    The Aristocrat on the right is a great shaver, not that any of them are bad.

    Sweet. I thought it might be an Aristocrat but needed verification. Scored the pile for $20 so I figured I wasn't going too far wrong.

    The Aristocrat is likely worth more than that by itself. As is the 40's SS. You did well on the deal.

    Great razors at a great price & they should clean up nicely.
    Congrats.

    Very good trip there. You did very well. Cleaning and polishing the old razors is half the fun.

    Nice hit!. When the weather turns for good I'm going to resume F-Market's and A-shops. The last two seasons nothing but Super Speeds and Tech's - which I don't need.

    Thanks. Any recommendations on what I should use to polish these? So far, they've gotten a bath with hot water, Dawn and a toothbrush, which helped quite a bit.

    Nice finds, also I personally use Flitz polish, less abrasive than others.

    It's been a long draught but today was a good day. I almost bought straight too but could not find anything on them online.
