    Yes. The No. 58 has gained in value as the other British Gillettes such as the No. 66 have gone up in value and gotten harder to obtain. Yours is in a correct box in good shape, and isn't missing any plating. On eBay would generally go for around $65 - $100 US.

    Like all the British Gillettes, they are good shavers, too.

    If I am not mistaken the 58 is essentially the same as a heavy duty double ring rocket with a different knurling on the handle. Both being one of the best models Gillette turned out.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Good luck, but most DE wet shavers know that the #58 is a desirable razor. I sold mine on ebay in a fit of stupid some time back for $125. They are superb shavers and very attractive. I also sold a excellent gold 66 (the buyer put in his display case) and a pristine Coronation 66 that later changed hands for $500 . May as well sell the rest of the DEs now for all the use they receive.

    Here are some pics of my #58 that my wife found at a flea market last summer - purchase price including the $1 admissio to the flea market ---> $6.00 :
