They can go for 30-50£ for a working but scruffy one up to 150-200£ for one in mint condition as part of a stropping set so it's all down to the condition. :) P.

That’ll go for considerably more than £50.00 I feel. I’d hazard a guess that it may go for at least double that; as it is, indeed, part of a stropping set. It’s not, despite the seller’s claim, 100 years old. The ‘patent applied for’ doesn’t indicate its providence. In fact, the set appears to be an Ever Ready 1912 ‘Streamline’. Although the patent goes back to 1912/1919, these fellows were introduced in the 1930s and were being produced up until the 1950s. Still desirable, nonetheless; although, I would want to see more pictures of the razor’s condition...

Difficult to judge condition with those awful pictures, let's assume it's average/used... I would put a maximum bid of £75 on it. Any more and you are paying over the odds, better to wait for another unless you're desperate.

What is it about Buses ?
Certainly true about Streamlines/Jewels etc. Currently bidding on; 2 part Clamshell Sets, I Ambassador?. I Jewel Combi set. All as one Lot, could go for too much and probably a bit rich for me.
