    That sure looks like a Gillette Fatboy. Not entirely positive but the handle looks too beefy to be a Slim. I'm sure others will chime in.

    Fatboy. The knurling on the handle is different than the slim.
    I'll give you 2.75, a piece of string, and a pack of bazooka Joe bubblegum for it if you want to trade:rofl:

    Just make sure the seller has good reviews. That is so important in this online purchasing game.

    Sure looks like a Fay Boy to me. Here's a 1959 model.

    Look under the base plate for a letter/number code - "E 4" is 1959 & 4th quarter.

    2nd quarter of 1959. Nice year. I wish they were still making Fatboys in 1962.

    It really depends upon the condition of the case, both inside and out. If the lid is out of alignment, I wouldn't. If there are dents, I wouldn't.

    Is there a razor to go with that case? It's a little before my time... Well the Fat Boy was before I was born but that case has dates from way back. Maybe someone into really vintage stuff knows?

    That could be a case for a Bostonian from 1922 or a Big Fellow from 1928.

    No razor, just the metal case, the foto is the top of the case and the best side also...looks quite patchy and stained, I thought items with signature were more collectable/rare, thats why I wantec to show you, it currently stands at £2
