Found a treasure

Postby hdaddy » Mon Apr 15, 2019 12:56 pm

While going thru his collection after the passing of wife's dad I found a framed certificate for free lifetime sharpening of W R Case razor #023 issued to Mr. Roy Teeter of Alton, NY. It is dated 26 May 1915 and is either signed by or stamped with the name J Russell Case. Futher suprised to find a box (not sure original) containing said razor #023. Have no idea where he came by this as he lived in OK. Am currently trying to find family to get some history on Mr. Teeter. Interesting.

I just did a quick look on eBay and also a Google search for an example of such a certificate and came up empty handed. By all means post a photo or two as it sounds like you might have a rare item. Congrats!
