    brit pat was on the hds and other razors 55 onwards..yours could be 55 due to not having the ll on the bottom..

    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?
