I'm missing the brush BUT I have the original shave stick to use
Nice piece. Question, what patent number is stamped on the base plate 400 621 or 400 030?
400 621 from memory but I'll have to check.
The ones with the 400 030 patent do exist but the exact switch over date has never been fully verified. It is assumed 1939. What is odd here is that even though there aren't many of these razors out there you'd think you'd see more with a 400 030 patent on them with the spirl knurled handles.
Can confirm 400 621.
1939 #47 Gillette Popular
With all that shine and sparkle you'll need to shave in the dark ..... better yet send it to me and with the distance it'll look like a glittering star.
Rarely seen 400 030 patent stamp making this a 39 - 40 nickel plated Popular.
very cool..i wonder if it's designated as a #46 set.the gold version in the white case is..
According to @Northstonehill initial post the advert shows this as a #45 set.
Also according to one of my posts in this thread showing a 1940 advert they still used #45 number for the same set (Popular set consisting of a blue moulded case with nickel plated razor) in 1940.
