I started the Burma-Shave series in the late 1990’s and released two coins at a time
until I completed the series at 20 coins. Included are 20 of my favorite Burma Shave
rhymes. For those of you that may have never heard of Burma-Shave, it is probably
the most famous and one of the most successful advertising campaigns in American
business history. Running from the 1920’s through the 1960’s.

A quick online check will tell more of the story and allow you to see some of the 600
Burma Shave jingles. Simply put the rhymes or jingles were posted on red and white
signs and in some cases black and yellow or blue and white signs. The signs were
spaced about 100-150 feet apart in farmers fields across rural America. The final sign
always read Burma Shave. Families traveling would pass the time trying to guess the
rhyme held within the next sign.

But what was Burma-Shave? Nothing more than a half pound glass jar of shaving
creme. In the days of no electric razor, men would use a straight razor and shaving
brush to apply shaving soap or creme. Burma shave allowed men to spread it on faces
or heads without using a shaving brush or shaving soap.

Initial subscribers to the series received an insert with each issue telling part of the
Burma-Shave story. Click on each coin to read the original insert on the world's
greatest shave. Feel free to copy and print it for your collection.
