Thumbs up

I would say 3rd Reich period with the D.R.P. stamped on the razor.
Great box, too. Would love to have it.

Thats no indicator. These markings were also used postwar, if the patent was given during a Reich-period, no matter if imperial or third.

Including
D.R.G.M. "Deutsches Reiches Gebrauchs Musterschutz" - meaning protected patented design under the Reich Government?

The problem is that DRP and DRGM were used until late 40's. Like the Reich Mark, they were produced until 1948.

It would appear that DRGM was actually used up until October 1952, although there is no reference or documentary evidence for this statement!

It will always be a challenge to authenticate commercial personal and ration items unless they are dated or documented in ads. I would rather have a DRP or DRGM marked item vs non marked even though their use extended into the 1950s. Rotbart was bought out by Gillette in 1927 and produced items until after the war. Given that the box and razor style are shown in prewar ads, that the Mond Extra brand was used pre war and the presence of the DRP stamp all lead me to believe the razor is prewar. Jim

Should the bakelite box have a DRP mark too ? Or only the razor itself?
