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

Arguably, the easiest & most frequently used method for dating cutlery.

 

Do you have a unique/rare stamping ??

 

Care to share a pic & a bit of history ??

 

Just as important ... a stamping that's just a little (or, a lot) suspect.

I think this is an attractive stamp that case used on tested era auto opening knives. This is the 61214 1/2. The second is a seldom seen 25 cent knife. There is a little history of the 25 cent 6106 on page 34 of "Images of America W.R. Case and Sons Cutlery Company by Boser and Sullivan. A must have for Case collectors. 

Here is my early Case & Son blade stamping. circa 1912 to 1915,made in western NY before the other sons joined in.

Old .. and we like old .. cutlery.

Nice! Michael that is one you dont see often and you dont see completely legible in most cases.  Thanks for sharing it with us

I guess I have forgotten how to do this. I stumbled on this one at an online auction recently. I believe it is a new favorite for me. My first swell center toe!

Whoa, Alan!

How many arms, legs, and or body parts this you have to sacrifice for this amazing piece of cutlery history?

What a score!

And in the realm of tang stamps you really got a good 'un!

Congrats!

Thanks Jan, that one was my great grandfathers. I think the stamp is about as good as it was when new, it does not look like great grandpa ever used the knife. This thread is a great idea and resource, Ill have to add some more. There are pictures of the whole knife on my page. 

Trying to date this one

That is not only rare it is clear and amazing!  That should be a new favorite Alan, Congrats

Alan-- Wait a moment while I wipe the drool off my keyboard - The C. Platts' Sons of Eldridge, PA  tang stamp dates to circa 1901-1905-- After the death of their father, the Platts brothers continued to run the business until 1903.H.N. Platts then began buying out his brothers interests in the firm, and merged it with W.R. Case & Son of Little Valley, New York. An incredible knife and incredible piece of knife history, It is fitting, too, that  your knife and Michael Squier's knife appear on the same page, as they were the two companies that merged.--WOW!!!!
