From what I've found out following pocket knives on ebay, the Anton Wingen, Jr. Othello knives are pretty rare. Here are three that I've picked off the Bay:

Sweet ol' knives guys! ::tu::

tjmurphy, I have seen and collected a few Othello fixed blade knives but yours are the first folders. I didn't know they made them, thanks for showing. ::drool::
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!
