Gillette Identification


New Member
Please tell me if I’m posting in wrong forum as all of this is new to me. I need some help making sure I’ve identified this razor I inherited correctly. I believe it to be a 1956 Gillette Super Special Flare Tip. A second generation introduced in 1954. I found a date code of B 1. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

B-1 would make it 1956 first quarter (January - March). I can't help much with the other info as my knowledge of TTO is limited.

A good resource would be:

It does not have much narrative information on the models, but it does have pics as well as specs and year produced.
