SIKESTON - Otto Mundorf, superintendent at the Sikeston General Hospital, obtained possession of a razor last week, which is 249 years old. The razor, one of the original pine type razors, has the date 1694 marked plainly. The razor was found in an antique piece purchased by Mrs. Mundorf. The former owners declined its return and supplied the history of the razor, which has been passed down from generation to generation in the family.
