Early orders included Pocket Edition sets, some of which are still extant.If we assume that the plant was operating at that same production rate six days a week for the entire year, they'd have been turning out somewhere between 20,000 and 25,000 razors a year." See also: The Montreal plant began low-volume production ca.

This is true for all of the Gillette Adjustable models.
This is not 100% accurate, since the blades may not be original or may have been made before or after the razor. The single-letter date codes are accompanied by a number, which corresponds to the quarter of the year. Date codes on blades (see above) also continued through this period.
