Thanks for the compliment on my collection Paul! Other members have sure posted some beautiful CASE Swing Guards on this post also.
That includes the one you just posted. Beautiful USA example. Nice red bone.
Not sure if you are aware but there are actually 4 different bone examples in the USA era...
Early model stamp font
Late model stamp font
No model stamp
Extra 1 model stamp
All in USA era. I have an example of each, just never photographed the knives stamps (or lack thereof in one example).
The transition between one and 2 listed above led to the example 3 and 4 listed above by way of factory errors or a very discreet marketing campaign best I can tell. Likely the former but who knows.
That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who leaves the world better than he found it; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in other's and gave the best he had.
