    So I picked up a lot of GEM Juniors:


    There are 6 Razors, all with Boxes. I am not going to call them NOS, cuz they have not been in my chain of custody for the last 80 plus years, but looks like a pretty good snag for razors that have a better than 50% chance of being unused. I am keeping one, and another is spoken for, so that leaves four more razors. I am not looking to make a profit, just break even for anyone that may not have tried a GEM Jr. It comes out to about $20/razor which includes CONUS shipping. Mods, I wasn't sure if this was more akin to a group buy, hence, not posting it in classifieds, although I defer to your judgement.

    I think it is fine as a group buy post. You aren't making any profit out of it or trying to flip them for gain. Could possibly be even a loss after figuring in PayPal fees and the postage. Good luck and thanks for giving folks an opportunity. :eatdrink047:

    Didn’t seem to be much interest in this, so I have made other arrangements, and these are no longer available. Stay tuned for a post in a couple weeks.

    So I got one of the razors back from replating today, and I also found a display card with micromatic blades to complete the set. Another member got in on this, and it worked out well. I'll leave it to him for a reveal later on, but here is mine:

    That's awesome! Turned out great!

    And the other member is me! Looking very forward to receiving it and taking it for its maiden voyage since they were all NOS razors! Thank you very much for facilitating everything!

    Glad to do it, it's what makes being a shave nerd fun! It's also nice to make new friends on here. Hopefully you will have your package on Friday. Let us know!

    Jody, did you ever take the Gem for a spin? Been busy so maybe I missed the post. The JR is definitely my favorite GEM thus far.

    I have used it four times and yes, it's a fantastic razor! One of my best razors I own!

    Between working more hours than usual helping my brother with his business and life in general, I've just been really lazy with documenting my shaves. And then today, I got caught up in my own fat feet and fell and have thrown my back out. So now I'm laid up dealing with that.
