    If anyone has some cool old spice gift sets feel free to post them here

    If anyone could help value my Gift set here. feel free to let me know. Both bottle are full. This is gift set No. 381 Front box says "ship Recovery-1794" any other writing on the box is still very much legible despite the quality of the pictures. I do believe this gift set is from 1955

    Who is listed as the manufacture? If it is from the 1950s or earlier, it should be Shulton INC.

    What size are the bottles, in ounces?

    I am an eBay and ETSY seller. Those are the real thing and I have seen crazy prices, asked for similar items, even in the one hundred dollar range. However, the real selling prices, for what you have, is in the $40 to $60 range, depending on the condition of both the box and bottles. From what I can see in your photos, everything, is at least, in very good condition. I would price, what you have at $50, maybe $55. you can always come down a little, if you have to.

    thank you for the info! although, the fragrance scent is still very much there, I will never use these and just keep this set as a collectible.

    Good for you! I buy and sell many things, but there are somethings, that are worth far more to me, in memories, than a few dollars!

    I like the Old Spice "treasure chest" sets.

    I almost scored a Lime one time but the price went too high. Fortunately this Burley set was more reasonably priced.

    The deodorant is usually shriveled up but the juice is always good.

    I’ve been tempted a couple of times.
    Usually I wait until I have two of a vintage item before I use it.
    One for the museum and one to enjoy.
    I will have to get busy eventually otherwise my stock will outlive me.

    I have enough bottles of vintage Old Spice, individual bath soaps, and individual shave soaps that the gift sets are extra stock.
    For some reason I don’t have any vintage O/S Musk and I’ve yet to score some of their more obscure products but I’m covered with everything else.
