Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

Hello all.

I have a rare souvenir pen knife that I am attempting to get a true value on.  How do I do it on this site?  I have several photos.

Thanks in advance,

Ted

Photos are definitely needed, Ted.  You can add them directly to this discussion by clicking on the photo icon (second from the left) on the top row.

I have several photos of the Knife and will add some here as I am having an issue with only uploading one at a time.  The woodworking I do are trains, ships and wheeled toys.  Both blades are spring loaded and both work. I sold them on Etsy but had to give up my workshop to support my wife and her sales on Ebay.  Here are some knife photos:

What I know about the Knife: It was manufactured at the Press Button Knife Company.  They were in business 1892-1923.  Both blades are spring loaded and both work.  There are U.S. patents engraved on both blades.  The handles are Sterling Silver with images of Washington DC buildings.  The blades have very little movement when opened.  I hope this helps.  I do have more detailed photos, if that helps.  Thanks all for your help.  Ted

Best suggestion I can give is to check with something like worthpoint.

I don't have a membership, but they have one that may give you a ballpark price.

There may be some collectors here, also, that can give you additional information.

Ted,

  I may be interested. You may contact me at knfcollector@hotmail.com
