    Nice. I think that case is older then the razor. I could be wrong though. Waiting for the shave report on the superspeed.

    That is possible, but either way I guess still a nice addition to the den.

    Congrats on the purchase! For $18 you got a good deal. The razor doesn’t belong to the case but that’s ok as you at least have a home for it until you do find the razor that goes in there. It’s a nice razor that shaves well

    Nice score! I can’t ever seem to find anything. Anybody on the mid-west coast of Florida know if any good places to look?

    The case is indeed older, from the 1950s, and in that shape was worth the money alone. Good buy!

    Like it's already been mentioned, not the right case, but a good haul.

    Very nice. Did not in any way mean to take away from it. Great price on a solid razor. And you have an excuse to hunt another razor!!

    All you gotta do is find a nice late '40s Super Speed (arguably the best) and you got a complete, correct set AND nice display.

    Would an X3 fit that case?

    Not a black tip. I meant fit as in be right. After reading it I see I missed asking the right question.
