Razor Date Codes began in 1950 and used the same system blades had used since 1930, a code that identified the year and calendar quarter of manufacture.The blade system adopted in 1930 is still in use today, and was used on razors as well after 1950. Other makers included serial or manufacturing codes, but we do not have the keys.These codes are found on the underside of the guard mechanism, or in cartridge razors, near the attachment mechanism for the blade.
