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.

Is the etch an ink etch or acid etch? I assume ink?

Also appears to have a full blade etch. I would proceed with caution on that one.

Without having it in hand.
Lunch box - had to use are frame on the shelf, and a blade on shelf. The nail Nick looks in a wrong location for a Remington. The frame isn't one off the shelf as they never made one that was in production. The stamp is moving into an erra where ink was being introduced. As strong as the etch appears to be I'd be nervous to pay big money. Not physical looking at it definately puts my opinion at a disadvantage. Jmo which isn't much. Good luck.

Thank you all so much. I had very strong reservations but it really helps for several collectors of our beloved Remingtons to discuss. I hope I can help you guys sometime. Thank you, John

The frame gives me some heartburn too, but it is more intuition than anything I could back up with facts or observations.

I did try to highlight the etch on the blade in a photo below. An observation, which may be wrong due to looking at photos vs. the actual knife, is that the blade has been cleaned in a peculiar way. In my experience when an etched blade is cleaned they clean "around" the etch. This blade looks like the etch itself was polished while a part of the blade above the etch was not polished. ::shrug:: See picture below.

Not trying to provide advice just trying to highlight some things I would investigate if I were a potential buyer for the knife.

The stamp may be legitimately used by Remington but from the pictures of the op knife I am quite sure the knife is not a real Remington product.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
