1905 Gillette Double Ring - Before and After

I found this razor in the wild on June 8. I did an initial cleaning, but I did not have any silver polish to remove the tarnish. I did not want to use Brasso because that is pretty abrasive. So, I exercised patience and waited until the next day (today) to get some Wright's Silver Cream and do the final polishing. Here is the sequence.

As is: right out of the box. The way I got it.

After initial cleaning with Dawn and Scrubbing Bubbles/ toothbrush.

After first polishing with Wright's Silver Cream.
There is still tarnish on the corners of the top plate.

After second round of polishing. It is looking great.
