Your stamp is correct John. I've not seen it in any reference material but I have 2 knives with the same stamp. My guess is mid to late 30'3.

John, hope you don't mind that I tried to make the stamp clearer and easier to evaluate. I am not knowledgeable enough with Remington marks to know what the official name for this mark is, however it does look good to me. Others will come along soon to provide a better answer.

Edit. looks like Keith and I were typing at the same time.

Have had it in my picture files forever. I can find no reference as to where I downloaded it from. ::dang::
Is it correct?

The reason I ask is I haven't seen the OP stamp in a chart before but I see it's in your reference. Just curious who put it out.

This is the one I most commonly refer to. Don't mean to derail your thread John.

I'll keep looking for its originality espn. Will post if found.
For a minute there I thought that perhaps I was posting "Fake News" :oops:

One thing about the Remington deal. Info is king, records are hard to come by. I appreciate you posting that. I saved it also. ::tu::

It looks like a big knife. What pattern is it?

That is the other mystery, coke bottle pattern. Not example to be found in pictures. The knife had been owned by two of the top knife experts. The fit and finish is spot on, the handle material is the exact slick black Remington used. Just an odd pattern.......,

Keith, the other concern is that there is no pattern number. If it was made in mid 30s I guess it could have been a proto , lunch box without a stamped number or the biggest concern, made up..........
