The aim of this thread is to categorize the Type G razors in a way that is easier understood for the average collector so as such I will not being using Appleby's designations other than the Type G label to describe them at all. They will be presented in chronological order with the variations that differentiate each from the other. This breakdown only covers US made Type G injectors. There were 2 unique Canadian made versions with black handles that won't be covered here. Type G razors come in 5 distinct variants. Some variants came with various different handle styles but are the same razor just different handle regardless of the set. Regardless of variant what makes a Schick injector a Type G is that they were the first razors produced by Eversharp after they took over the Schick brand from Magazine Repeater Company in 1946. The distinguishing feature of all Type G razors is they feature 2 patent numbers on the razor handle 1806087 and 1969945. The first variant was produced in 1946/1947. It is distinguished by the fact it has a squared ferrule and the spring says Schick Injector on it. The razor was only produced in an ivory / cream colored handle style. The second variant was produced in a special Christmas set for 1946 and 1947. It is distinguished by the fact the ferrule is rounded, the handle is the only one made of metal and the razor was completely plated in 14k gold. The third variant was produced between 1947/48 and 1952. It is distinguished by the fact the ferrule is squared and the spring says Eversharp Schick on it. This razor came in various handle styles. Style 1 - ivory / cream colored handle Style 2 - gold plated handle produced only in a special Christmas set in 1948 and 1949 Style 3 - Chrome head and navy blue handle. Only sold in a set called the Schick 66 between 1948 - 1951 Style 4 - gold head and navy blue handle. Style 5 - turquoise colored handle Style 6 - amber colored handle The 4th variant was produced in 1953 and 1954. It is distinguished by the fact it has a circular ferrule and the spring says Eversharp Schick on it. The razor was produced in an ivory / cream and possibly other colored handle styles. The 5th and final variant was produced between 1954 - 1957. It is distinguished by the fact it has a circular ferrule and the spring says Eversharp Schick on it. The handle style changes to a ribbed design and was only produced in an ivory / cream color.
