WR Case & Sons Humpbottom Congress LP

The W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company has a very rich history that began in 1889 when William Russell (“W.R.”), Jean, John, and Andrew Case began fashioning their knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. The company has produced countless treasures and it continues to do so as one of the most collected brands in the world.

Nice find! Looks like maybe a 63046LP. What's the closed length? How about laying it down flat on a solid background (piece of white paper or similar) and photographing it so we can see it better. ::tu::

I won't be able to help with your decision. Just wanted to say the knife is old, rare, and authentic in my opinion. ::tu:: ::tu:: The fact that it has been carried and sharpened will affect how people put a value on it.
