On the inside each blade is wrapped and marked slotted in red ink. This mark (slotted) was done when most of the blade manufacturers went to the Gillette standard sometime in the early 1900's. The pack is 1-7/8" X 1-1/16" X 1/4" and has the days of the week on it: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Each pack of 5 blades is a $12.00 value before shipping.

Advertising copy from 1929:
1929 British Industries Fair Advert for Myatt Patent 'Daymark' Blades, for Gillette Type Razors only. 'The only Daymark Blade in the World'. Manufacturers of Myatt Patent Daymarked Safety Razor Blades as supplied to H. M. Government. The blades being marked with the days of the week, preserve their keenness and last longer.

I purchased these in Lampasas, Texas many years ago and found some interesting information on an old W. J. Myatt Imperial safety travel razor set. It had the following stamped in the metal case: Importers Forest Cruse & Sons Austin, Texas. As you may know Lampasas is not that far from Austin and I bet a store in Lampasas purchased these blades from the importer in Austin back many, many years ago.

Great item for all you seibinologists (those who study the practice of shaving) out there.
