    If you can get a clear view of the stampings, that can indicate an approximate year of manufacture. It's frowned upon to discuss value here but what you have is a nice looking razor. One that many of us would be glad to have in our collection at a price that many wouldn't be opposed to paying.

    I'm sure that there is more information out there, but this thread can give you an idea as to when it was made.

    Just got the razor.

    AMAZING, seller even did a nice subtle polish to get the worst of it gone, but left the etching intact.

    Edge is still great, cleaned a nice big spot on my arm in a couple passes, no irritation.

    only downside is, i was going to work on this guy for a while then order a strop and brush.

    guess ill just have to speed those plans up a bit

    Old Bokers are finest quality. that jimped thumb notch is a great feature. Yours seems to have been well used and properly honed. A lot! Nothing wrong with nice, even hone wear, though! I could recommend a layer of tape and get a new bevel. It will shave nicely, no doubt.
    Go to it!
