True Remington Tang Stamp???

The Remington Corporation and the knives that they built have influenced the U.S. cutlery industry more than nearly any other manufacturer. From the time America was settled, to the end of WWI, American knife companies struggled to compete with Britain and German imports, but events that occurred during and after the First World War led to a great change in this phenomenon. Unprecedented opportunities arose, and Remington stepped up to seize the moment. In the process, they created some of today's most prized collectables. In an ironic twist, the next World War played the greatest role in ending the company’s domination of the industry.

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.

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.

I'll keep looking for its originality espn. Will post if found.

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..........
