I just checked the razor and it is clearly stamped, "Made in U.S.A."
Just compared to mine. Looks like a 3. The 4 has a more square piece close to the handle. I haven't seen enough e1's to know for sure about that, but I do know they are quite rare. Yours does look an E3 to me though.

Much welcome. I wish I knew more. There are some guys over at TSD that can identify nearly any SE razor, even distinguishing between different versions of the different injector types. It is really quite amazing

I could be wrong, but that looks like a G type to me, due to 1) the stamping of two patent numbers (I believe the E only has one patent stamp) and 2) the brownish seamed handle (as opposed to the yellowish unseamed handle of the E). I'm sure someone more in the know will chime in.

Great thread!

The stamping makes sense. But I see no seem in the handle. Hard to tell though. Would need better photos for that

But definitely agree about the stamping, didn't even think of that (I'm still very much a newbie with this). So not an E. One of the very reasons to have this thread. Tons of knowledge to be shared. Thanks for the many posts already everyone! Much appreciated and let's keep it going.

I absolutely love SE razors. Over 90% of my shaves are done with them.
Awesome! Which razors do you use?

Too many for a list.

Instead, my fav's are the ER '24 and GEM OCMM for everyday razors but mostly the ER '24. My fav' razor that I use to break in GEM SS PTFE blades is the GEM '24. Those 3 do the heavy lifting. The rest exist for kicks. I have a decent selection to choose from for kicks. :-)

I'm on a new blade now, but the previous blade spent time in a ER '07 lather catcher before going into the ER'24.

Very nice! No injectors for you then?

I use Gem SE blade razors most of the time. The only four I use are the MMOC, British 1912, 1914 and 1924 Shovelhead. I have a bunch of others, including the Featherweight, Bullet Tip, Streamline, G Bar and copies of the MMOC and 1914, but I just use those four. I can't decide which one I like best.

I also have three or four Schick injectors, including two E types, but can't figure out how to get a close shave.

I also use the stainless steel and aluminum versions of the Mongoose. I'm still on the fence about these.
