Razors made in USA often left the factory with serial numbers or date codes, which can be used to establish their manufacturing dates. May launch of New Improved razor with new serial number format, starting with 1A.
During certain periods some or all models were unmarked. The Old Type continues as "Brownie" and various other sets, but without serial numbers. In 1930 Gillette stopped using serial numbers on razors.
An event aimed at enhancing IT literacy and innovation among UCLA Faculty, through tech speed-dating, faculty are introduced to productivity tools in 10-minute intervals that will help save them hours in their teaching and research.
Volunteers will have 10 minutes to explain what a particular productivity tool can do, give a brief demo, and show how to get started.
So razors made from 1930-49 can be difficult to date precisely.
However, blades made in those years were stamped with a date code: A for 1930, B for 1931, etc., plus 1-4 for the year quarter. In 1950 this system was expanded to include razors, too (see below).
Faculty are often too busy to learn about new resources that could make them more efficient.
Community Partnership Programs, along with a handful of faculty and research specialists, conduct a form of “speed dating for technology” for the faculty.
