On the heels of the recent passing of famed Indianapolis literary icon, Kurt Vonnegut, I've got two great pieces of memorabilia that collectors may appreciate. Besides his senior year yearbook that I'm separately listing, I have this razor from the Indianapolis hardware store which his great grandfather founded. It is clearly marked "Vonnegut" on one side of the blade and "Vonnegut H'dw'e Co Indianapolis, Ind. Made in Germany " on the other. The handle has a hairline that runs almost the length of it on one side. The box that comes with it is marked "C.R. Akers, Indianapolis , Ind Star Test." Never any game playing with a reserve, so you will own it if you are the high bidder. Buyer to pay $5 shipping within the U.S. with insurance, if wanted, extra. Always a seven day return policy for a full refund (minus postage) if you're not happy with your purchase for any reason once you see it.
