Picked this up for less than the price of a new 2017 model.
Right around 50 years old (made in 65-69) and looks like it came right out of the store.
The dye/jigging on the bone scales is easy to pick out when it's lying next to some newer knives.

I'm a huge Case fan, and have a decent collection of 70's and early models. The newer models do little for me, same deal for Smith & Wesson revolvers.

Pics or it didn't happen....
