    Default Could anyone please help with dating this Filarmonica?

    Hello!
    What generation it could be without "Made in Spain" on reverse of the tang but with "Espana" on the face of it?
    Thank you!

    I cannot help with a date, but that is a mighty fine razor. Welcome to SRP.

    My guess...1967-1979 second generation.
    New scales (a few versions), gold seals, and tang stamps mark this era.
    Tang stamps settled into a uniform style with small horizontal number, lyre, JMP, model, and Filarmonica


    Beautiful specimen, congrats!

    Is the stamp still affixed to the back of the box?

    Pre-1950 would also include the tall & vertical "14" with curved tang info. First generation is really hard to nail down.
