My son gave me a gift card for my birthday for the bay. SO...... yesterday while cruising for a victim, I see this odd looking 34OT tang stamp on an Old Timer.
While looking at it, it hit me.... no pattern NUMBER under the "Schrade N.Y. U.S.A." stamp on the mark side of tang.
Then, when I flipped to the next picture, I see "34OT" on the pile side of the tang....
SO..... I figure this must have been a transition blade that was stamped right after the "WALDEN" was dropped from the mark side tang
What do y'all think?
Here it is....(Sellers pics)
.... Here is the tang stamp from the 1st Old Timers...
And then the tang stamps went to this 2nd one, after the "WALDEN" was dropped from the stamp...
My new one seems like a mixture of the 1st and 2nd tang stamps.
Thanks for looking everyone!
