This is a J. A. Henckels #78 1/2 model straight razor that was made in Solingen, Germany. Henckels is considered by many to be one of the very best razors ever made. They have had a lot of experience since they started in business in 1732. I would place this razor as being made in the mid 1900's. It is in all around defect and blemish free condition.
