Found this razor which has a date code of 'E 4'.

It looks like a Slim Adjustable but according to multiple internet searches the slim adjustable was not manufactured on either of the 'E' dates. (1959 and 1984).

Can anyone shed any light on this?20180811_123008.jpg

Certainly looks like a slim, some great information here: http://www.gilletteadjustable.com/slim.html . If it is E4 then it could be a real rarity, even if the date stamp was a factory error. Can you post a picture of the underside and the inside of the head once you have cleaned it up. I am assuming you are going to clean it.

Great cleaning advice Sean C. I'll give that a go.

The razor belonged to my late grandfather and I found it in the bathroom cabinet at my nans house. It won't have moved for at least 20 years, possibly longer, hence why it looks so bad !

The more muck the more satisfying it is to clean :) (then remaining watermarks looking like easy peasy to fix can be a pain in the behind)
Peek Polish shifts watermarks very easily. Has never taken more than 2 applications in my experience

I have had failures using Autosol, result looking good but when I really check a remaining shadow is still there, will try and get hold of some Peek Polish to test.
