Here's a Scrimshaw Trapper I found on New Years Eve at an antique store....I snatched it up right quick...  They also had a folding hunter with the 2 bison on it, but the blade had some sever pitting on it so I didn't get that one.

These are incredible looking!

Here is a set of the Schrade I*XL Wostenholm Scrimshaws in white bone.

 

Andy you did real well with the trapper.  The Schrade scrimshaws are one of the nicest in the industry.  There were just enough made to keep them collectible but not so few that they became astronomically priced.  Another one of the appeals is that they did not stick to making the entire series out of trapper patterns.  That is a balance few companies ever find.  It worked for Schrade so they kept doing them !

Thanks Jan, I knew as soon as I saw it I had to have it....and the price couldn't be beat.  I'm still debating on the folding hunter I saw, just didn't like the price for the condition.

A great knife Andy! The Schrade scrimshaws are the mainstay of my collection. I love them all!

WOW great set of knives beautiful

A couple we picked up at an auction over the weekend.  Still in their gift boxes!

Two great finds Andy. Frank Giorgiani loved watching the antics of raccoons and they were his favorite animals to scrimshaw.

The racoons are also my favorites

New to me from one of my picking spots...

Great find Andy!

Four years later and I am reading this, I do in fact have a 1979 set with matching numbers in the retail display box. I'm not sure but I don't think the sets in display box with matching numbers were available to the public. I think those sets were for retail display, I happened to get lucky and got the set of knives with the retail display box brand new still packaged together from the factory. I know they are out there but I have not seen one yet in a personal display other than mine. I am going to try to post a couple photos.

No problem. These were the early sets...and were sold individually, one knife at a time. In the 80's they started putting them in wood boxes or you could by the sets individually and then when you completed it get the wood box. 

There were about 1500 of each knife / set made. I know sets in the wooden boxes were all matching serial numbers, not sure on these '79 sets.
