Yes, i believed but i have "Brit Pat" and not Patent Pending...
brit pat was on the hds and other razors 55 onwards..yours could be 55 due to not having the ll on the bottom..
you are probably right! No more mystery!!
Thanks for all!!!
54 - 58 for sure I have ads proving that date range for the British Rockets.
Here is an ad from 1956 showing the British style Rocket razor sold both as a Rocket and as a one piece.
Here is an example of a Flare Tip razor that was never sold or referred to as a Rocket though collectors still do refer to it as such.
Oddly enough, I own the same type of FT. Mine is a strange bird; it has the Brit Pat # in the blade tray, but does not have "Made in England" stamped on the underside.
Doesn't that mean it was German made?
This is my guess as well.
Separate names with a comma.
