That's the first Coca Cola Atlanta knife I have seen. My book says that most were made by Camillus in the 30s-40's. Very cool!
What a nice hobo! I haven't ever heard of Ostdiek & wouldn't have associated that name with Case.
I learn so much for the forum!

I can find no mention of a knife by this company anywhere, in any book.
I looked for info on this for a couple weeks or more.
I emailed Mike Silvey, author and noted military knife expert, and a nice guy.
Mike had no info on them.
Parenthetically; Mike has a great book out that I highly recommend: "Pocket Knives of the United States Military".
It is one of my favorite knife books and has lots of great color pictures from very early Navy knives to modern knives.
My go to source of info on TL-29 knives.

I did a search on yellowpages.com for the company.
I found two listings, one in Texas & one in New York.
I was not able to get a hold of the Texas company but I managed to contact the company in New York,
Here are my notes from that call:
Called phone number for A E Fuller Co. (found in Yellowpages.com).
The phone was answered by a lady who said A E Fuller Co. was her husband’s company but the company no longer exists.
I explained I was a knife historian, researching a knife with the AE Fuller name on it. She said they must have had the knife made for them.
She said they were manufactures representatives.
So after a week + of research I have a definite ‘maybe’ as to the origin of my mystery knife.
I must admit; it is more information than I have been able to get on some knives of unknown lineage.
