    the 3 piece rfb sets were the basic razos of their day..the richies got the aristocrats and new deluxe sets.like the techs in the 40s and up..

    Been on a long strange trip across the west and midwest. Stumbled across a no serial Cavalier set (minus one blade case) and a Red Tip that appears unused, with cello wrapped blue blades. Pictures after I get home. And a black painted (?) single ring. Good hunting!

    You have quite the collection Gary. I continue to be impressed. So much so that I even looked this one up:

    Gillette Aristocrat adjustable, Bic Chrome Platinum, shave 5
    GA.jpg

    1964 model with a date code of J. Razor was set at 8. Still mild at this setting but much more efficient than lower settings. I also did some back and forth with a Slim also a J date coded razor and found they are pretty mucb identical shave wise as I always suspected. End result not quite a BBS finish after 5 passes but better than most Gillette razors.
