Newest Case Pick-Ups

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.

Hard act to follow with that early Case beauty Ralph posted but these three came over the past few weeks and was out of town and busy so here's the group shot instead of one at a time:
1972 brownish red bone 06247
'40-64 red bone with some black 06247 PEN
'40-64 greenbone 62087
Middle one courtesy of Knifeaholic and I've been carrying and using it. Sweet knife. Thanks Knifeaholic.

Thanks Farside, that was the key. Didn't have any green bone, always wanted to get some. Paid through the nose and out the tailpipe I figure forty or fifty more than the same thing in red bone. That hurts. Hopefully it will hold it's value.

Wow, Keith, that one must be hard to find. It didn't even make it in the 1st addition of Knifeaholic's book. It is in the #9 traders price guide. Y'all sure come up with some fine ones! ::tu::

Nice find Keith. ::tu:: ::tu:: In my experience the 76 1/2 pattern is hard to find in any handle material and the stag version is really scarce. Your 5376 1/2 is the second one that I have seen and the first 5376 1/2 with long pull on the clip. My opinion is the long pull and multiple blades marked indicates it was made early in the Tested XX era.

I also have one. Unfortunately photos do not do justice to how good a knife really looks sometimes.
