The concern is what happens after you no longer own it. Someone may think it a mint vintage razor, find a matching box and sell it as such. SOME less scrupulous folks will intentionally mis-represent it to make some fast cash. You are not the first owner and you probably won't be the last. A razor that looks like that because it's never been used is in an entirely different category (and price) than one that has been replated/restored. It's nearly (completely?) impossible to tell them apart. Your razors look fantastic. I have no doubt that their beauty kicks up the shaving experience a few notches. I don't think anyone is condemning replating. I may get few of mine done in the future. But I wholeheartedly agree that marking them is the way to go.
