It's exactly like the Criterion pic in my post, no pins but no serial number.
Exactly what I have with the exception of having "New Standard" stamped below the logo.
wrong case unfortunately..they only sold the criterions in 1930 and 1935..as far as i know..christmas razors..could be wrong though..
That was my first guess, either by an individual or maybe Gillette did it because of the same style case.
possibly,if yours was a serial numbered 1930 maybe but being a 1935 model maybe not.someone had a nice standard case and put your razor in it?,or got theirs mixed up if they had both? the cases are the same,just one liner is marked standard..either way nice razors.you could find a nice standard/new improved without a case and have a home for it..the case in that shape is quite rare for it's age..
Yeah, was thinking the same also, even if just the logo part was the only good thing about it. I can always swap them. But to be honest, I did re-line the bottom of my case.
Sorry to ramble on, but probably be easier to replace the top liner with a new one, even if there won't be a new logo on it. And get a New Standard later on.
either way .very easy task for yourself to accomplish..my 1930 set exterior case is a little beat up but the razor and interior are mint..rambling is good..
Well, if it's like the above cases, and you want it done, no problem there. Those cases come apart in different sections and easy to work on. It'll just have a different grain pattern, unless I can find a good match.
thank you Jim .i'll keep it in mind..i use the razor often so it won't be mint for long.my brit version though is very mint ,so i am not so concerned..
There are a few different models, but they are based on the plating, the case, and/or the plating thickness. These differences are identified in more detail in the old catalogs and ads.
The NEW DeLuxe can easily be mistakened as a New Improved(New Standard, Bostonian, etc.), and visa-versa. Key identifiers are serial numbers or even the lack thereof. Locating pins will ALWAYS be a New Standard, and never a NEW, on the fixed guard razors(when looking at this “Art Deco” Type Razor.
Serial numbers are also helpful in identifying the differences. I need to add some more stuff to the bottom of my Den page. I wish we could still have a couple of pages...
