I have a couple of these and want to trade one for a Gillette Super Adjustable with case and blades for my collection.

Razor is original finish in excellent condition.  Doors open and close smoothly, adjustments are crisp and audibly click through all settings,  there is no slop or overplay in TTO knob.

The case has minor scuffing, but both hinges are intact and opens and closes securely.  Blade case has blades in it and instructions have faded with time.

 This razor has been shelved and never used by me. Pics below show the condition, PM me if you have questions or want to deal...

It's a "Fatboy".  They were originally called 195 adjustable's; if I remember correctly it was because in the late 50's when they where developed the initial market cost was $1.95.  The term "Fatboy" is a modern term given during the reintroduction and advocacy of wet shaving in recent years....

That is correct, the retail price was $1.95 in 1959 when they were sold.
