There was a variation of the 40's style known as the Black Tip.
It came in the aluminum handle (bottom) and the standard handle (top).
There is only one horizontal ring as opposed to the two on the 1956 (B-1) on the right. I hope to come up with more clarification and will update here as this muddiness clears.
Another very special variation of the 50's style Super Speed was the 1958 TV Special which was released as another promotion for the American television show, .
50's Style - A richer knurled handle and a flair tip introduced in 1954 (Z date code).
Notice the shorter TTO knob on the 1959 (E-4) on the left.I was handed down a Gillette SS by my father over 30 years ago which I have used on and off since(mostly off).Only recently I picked it up and looked at it properly.I very quickly came to the conclusion that people don't make things like this anymore and felt a duty to keep the razor and the tradition of DE shaving going. So I have been using it everyday for the past 3 to 4 weeks and really enjoying the experience.
Then it came to the point when I wanted to find out a bit more about the razor, but have only got so far and I am a bit stuck. My Superspeed has a Gillette diamond, made in England and III marked on the underside, and 694093 stamped on the inside.
This one is a favorite among many wanting that aggressive shave.
