The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
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.
the case 25 cent stamp is awesome alan.

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.
Thanks Ron, I still have all appendages after completing the purchase, just left some long green behind! :)

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!
That is a very cool stamping!
