    Default German hair clippers?

    My friend gave me these hair trimmers he bought for $2 at a yard sale. They appear to be German and from at least the thirties or fourties, IMO. There are marks on the inner arm reading."B M M 63r"
    Thanks for any info.

    It's really hard to tell, these markings are as good as no markings at all (unknown to me at least). I have had several pre-war trimmers, one even in original box with some spare parts, all nicely marked "Solingen, ...., Made in Germany". I don't know how many countries produced these in the past, but Russians did up to eighties and probably still do today

    They are Russian and made in 1963.

    If you see what to Western eyes looks like a letter "r" after a number, that indicates the years of manufacture. So 63r = 1963.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes, this "r" is more like "L" turned upside down and reads "g" (like i.e. in "gehenna"). "G" stands for "god" (in cyrillic of course) which in Russian means not the heavenly father but "year".
