I think you're right, Charlie. I like that cap on yours.
Mine is on page 4 of this thread.

If anyone's interested, my wife has a nice little pearl Terrier for sale; right now in her store, Archway Cutlery, here on AAPK.

The little Terrier jack arrived today.

I’m quite pleased with it. I don’t think I could have gotten this at a knife show for forty dollars.

It is only 2 7/8” long.

Has the Dog’s Head logo on the back of the master and a pattern number, 15 / 722, on the back of the pen. That would be a Robeson pattern number of 722015. They reversed the two sets of three digits on the Terrier knives. When Robeson assigned numbers to their knives in the very early 1900’s, this pattern was the 15th knife to receive one. So, it’s an old pattern.

Blades are nearly full, but with pits, spiders and patina.

They open and close with audible snaps.

Both have the full stamp, TERRIER / CUTLERY / ROCHESTER, N.Y. in three lines.

There is a crack across the back handle with a bit of material loss by the rocker pin.

She’ll display well from the front.

Pretty good knife to date from the 1910 to 1916 time period.

That's a little charmer, Charlie. I'm glad you got it.

This Terrier 672/612 Locking Folding Hunter showed up on EBay a couple of months ago.

It’s sort of a junker since the blade is missing, but there was something about the bone on the front and the fact I had never seen a Terrier in this pattern before, so I bought it. It wasn’t very much.

While I was getting things together for Lexington, I cleaned it up a bit.

The back side bone is very typical for the Terrier time period, but that front piece is just awesome.

That bone is exceptional, Charlie! ::tu::
Interesting how far the one pin, on the backspring, is forward. Does it make for a very stiff opening, on a blade?

Beauty Mike ::tu:: ::tu:: ... Love that "rich" bone - and blade looks to be in great shape... I really think Terrier (and Robeson) used spectacular bone and the worm groove jigging was always my favorite when any company used it - a few CT companies used it fairly often like H&B New Britain as just one example...
