    Just got this 1918 Gillette Khaki Set in the mail today. It was issued to a member of the U.S. Army and has a serial code of J655. The only thing missing from this set is the mirror. 22629E66-D4A7-4D4F-8A55-CB1DFDA80113.jpeg

    Mine has no date stamp. Any idea on what year it might be Gary?

    Could be as early as 61/62. That is the lower profile head with the end tabs like an American Super Speed. That change happened on the British flare tip 1pc razors either late 61 but no later than 1962.

    Thank you Gary! I'm hoping to have the '46 Ranger Tech by the end of the week. For the time being the '41 and the '46 will be doing a timeshare with this case as I only have one. :eatdrink047:
