Was hoping you would post....
When I get back I’ll share some more pictures. They are all my “user” ABC’s. As a Tron fan, I fight for the Users.
This might make you wiggle a little.
Now that is awesome. I’ll be printing that one out.
Here are a couple of others...
The 505 Pocket Edition
My 1911 505 Shell Patterned Handle Pocket Edition
Wow. Just beautiful
With the additional interest in the Pocket Edition Razor sets, those looking should understand a couple of things when pursuing them. These are identifying characteristics that can make it more simple to understand. These might not be hard and fast, but with the compilation of notes and ads, in addition to data from Mr Razor's site, Victorobrador.com, and others from other shaving forums.
1908: Buckle Latch Case
1910: Fancy 4-Rivet Push Latch Case
1911: Plain 4-Rivet Push Latch Case
1913: Gold/Purple ribbon was changed to silver/purple in silver plated ABC sets.
1913-14: The patent date stamp and KCGs signature was also changed to patent numbers and a different signature around 1913-14 as the earliest razor serials are from 1913.
1915: Production shift from ABC to Gillette, these are the thicker cases, happened around 1915. The Gillette Cases do not have the patent engraving on the battom, while the ABC cases, still in production, do.
1916: 2-Rivet Case made by Gillette, not ABC
1917: ABC production came to a halt in 1917, when the factory burned down.
1920: 501 Rivetless & Two Hinge Cases. 1920-Mid 20’s
Mid-1920's 501 Rivetless & Continuous Hinge Cases. 1920’s-1936+
They can be expensive, don't buy something that isn't what it is being presented to be.
