    The letter represents the year of manufacture, the number, that of the quarter in that year. That is to say.... 1 is Jan-March, 2 is April-June, 3 is July-Sept, and 4 is Oct-Dec.
    A razor made in the year of 1961 will have the letter G, followed by the number relating to the quarter of its manufacture.
