    Hello Brit, I don't know if you are aware of it, but the razor in the photos seems to be a 22/66 Aristocrat. Can you post another photo or two? I may be wrong, but more photos will tell us for certain.

    Beautiful razor Brit! I see the flat base plate in the new photos now. I am sorry for my confusion. I was certainly mistaken. Great score sir!
