    IMG_20181223_102117_104.jpg Taking it way back today. I was feeling sentimental today, and busted out grandpa's razor. It is a NDC ball end tech. I'm not the Gillette expert, so please correct me if I am wrong, but I do believe it is a mid 50s model.

    nice razor Aaron, date codes started again in 1951 after a 20 odd year ndc period./if yours has no code it would be from 1946-50..not a gillette expert either.an enthusiastic collector at best..

    I had it close. I always said mid 50s, based on time frame of grandparents. I know realize that it is older than I thought.
    It does have the oval slots on the base plate, and I know that helps with dating it.
    I will post more photos this evening in hopes I can narrow it down further.
    Thanks for the help.

    Thanks Gary. I like your rotating shaving setup with the vehicle back round. It's one of the more original shave display concepts on the forum.

    For my Christmas Eve morning shave I pulled out my very favourite Super Speed, a 1949 NDC model. This one is a solid 54g and I really like how elegantly simple it is. I like the simple but solid and functional red case too.
