|The pictures below show larger views of this Old Boxed Remington Rand 60 DeLuxe Electric Shaver With Shaver Service Kit. The electric razor and its paperwork are not dated but they are believed to be from the early 1950s. There is much here in this lot.

The final item in this lot is a Remmington Electric Shaver Accessory. It is the Service Kit that is mentioned above. In a separate box, this kit has a full bottle of lubricant oil, a straight cleaning brush, a round cleaning brush, and a tiny screw driver.
All of these items for one price! To judge the sizes the box picturing the razor measures about 5-3/4'' x 4-1/2'' x 2''. These items appear to be in excellent to mint condition as pictured. The sleeve box has a tear area on a corner. The cleaning kit box has some wear. The whole outfit does have an old odor to it. At the time of this listing it is being stored in a bag with baking soda to help eliminate that, but it will need to be aired out, and perhaps a real good thorough cleaning will help.
