<div>VERY RARE 1927 Gillette Tuckaway G-in-D STAMPED Silver, New Improved </div><div> </div><div> This very nice Tuckaway in it's original case, the shaving kit comes from the 1920s - likely 1927</div><div>or 1928 when these razors were not numbered. This razor has a G-in-D stamped on the underside of the</div><div>blade head. There is light vintage wear to the plating of the razor and the case. </div><div> </div><div> As with almost every Gillette razor of this era, there is a hairline crack at the end of the handle</div><div>tube. The crack is stable, the pieces are secure. Shaving is not affected. The teeth of the comb </div><div>are straight. The razor has been sanitized in Barbicide and scrubbed with antibacterial soap. </div><div>The case is square and sturdy; the latch latches and opens as it should.</div><div><br></div><div> THIS ITEM IS A VERY RARE 1927 Gillette Tuckaway G-in-D STAMPED.</div><div>This razor is a 1927 Gillette New Improved safety razor using the pioneering system of disposable</div><div>blades (patented by Gillette in 1904). Silver-plated "NEW IMPROVED" razor.</div><div> </div><div> This razor is extremely collectible because it has a marking of a "G inside a D" on the bottom of the </div><div>blade holder which means that at one point the razor was returned to the Gillette factory for repair. </div><div>Apparently Gillette gauranted it's razors and if part of the razor got damaged you could return it</div><div>and they would either fix or replace the part. When finished Gillette stamped a "G inside a D" so </div><div>that that piece was not eligible to be fixed for free twice. As I was told by a representative </div><div>from the Gillette history department. He told me also that the "G inside a D" stood for </div><div>"Damaged Gillette."</div><div><br></div><div> This is the really rare thing about this razor, think of the millions of safety razors Gillette</div><div>sold and the very small number of razors returned to be fixed!! This razor is one; you tell me </div><div>how many more there are that still exist. If you find one you better keep it because there are very </div><div>few. I've been collecting razors for about 40 years and I have only seen 3 of these razors with the </div><div>GD marking.</div><div><br></div><div>PRICE $450.00 OBO</div><div>SHIPPING $5.60 CONTINENTAL USA</div><div><br></div><div></div><div><br></div><div></div><div><br></div><div></div><div><br></div><div></div><div><br></div><div>PAYPAL ONLY</div><div>INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING COST: DEPENDS WHERE BUYER IS LOCATED.</div><div>INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I WILL NOT ALTER SELLING OR SHIPPING PRICE OR MARK AS A GIFT, I SHIP ONLY </div><div>PRIORITY MAIL OUTSIDE OF U.S.A.</div><div>INSURANCE IS AT THE DISCRETION OF THE BUYER.</div><div><br></div><div>Terms of Sale:</div><div>When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you </div><div>would expect with an older piece.
