The serial number is C547660. The set was triple silver plated at the factory per Gillette. The razor has no bent teeth and the handle is solid brass so there are no cracks. There are some light scratches on top of the head. The threads are fine but the plating is worn with some brass showing a bit on top of the handle and bottom of the head where the handle meets the head. The plating may be getting a tad bit light on the ball end of the handle… Maybe you can see with zoom on the pics? Other than all this the plating looks great. The case hinges and lock mechanism work fine. On the exterior there is a small dent from the inside you can see in pic 11, Also, a small ding on top right corner of the name plate pic 10. Some light scratches top and bottom and the plating may be getting a little worn through on front latch button but other than that, I think the exterior looks great with some minor spots of patina. The interior is great as well, still plush with some minor wear and small tear bottom left. Blade case works fine with some light scratches and very small ding on one side of the lid.
