If there is a model stamp on back of main blade, it will either be a small or large stamp Cheetah. It will be a 9 dot Cheetah (whether you see 8 or 9 dots visible) as no 8 dots were ever proven to be made. The small stamp will have model stamp of 5111-1/2LSSP and large stamp will say 5111-1/2L. 1700 of each made according to my research and yes, released in early 70's stag sets during stag embargo when CASE stag knives were scarce.
Post a pic of back of main blade tang where model stamp is and I can confirm.
I can also turn you in to more info regarding CASE Swing Guards when time permits.
