Old Razor Blade Tin - American Gem Razor, Wedge Blade Tin

This small tin once held a vintage American Gem single edge wedge razor blade for an early safety razor. The front is decorative with The Gem Cutlery Co. of New York across the bottom. The back has nice graphics with a man, face partially cover with lather, smiling at his razor. To one side it reads; Be Your Own Barber - The Gem Safety Razor Shaves Clean. The other side reads; Absolutely No Danger of Cutting the Face. The inside has an embossed paper insert both top and bottom but does not come with a blade.

This hinged tin measures about 2 1/8" by 1 3/8" and is in nice condition with light scratches and minor wear.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
