This afternoon, my visit to the post office produced this pocket knife. It now becomes my latest "card" to be posted under this topic or thread and also to be added to the "deck." It is a CAMILLUS, Ten Of Hearts, one blade, one tang etch, 3 1/4" closed, lockback, pocket knife. The main blade front tang etch says "CAMILLUS (over) Made in the U.S.A." This pocket knife, along with a deck of playing cards, came in an original display package. I do NOT know if this particular pocket knife originally came with this particular display package, probably not. Both the deck of cards and the pocket knife had been previously removed from the display packaging. The display packaging measures 7" x 9" and has a slot for hanging. Overall, the display packaging is in FAIR+ condition. The pocket knife and the playing cards are in EXCELLENT condition. The pocket knife does NOT need any cleaning at all. I took some pictures and here it is.
Caption(s), if any, are on the BOTTOM of the corresponding picture(s).
