Vintage Rare Mint Case 6488 Transition 1964-1965 Big Congress Bone Knife
Hi, a beautiful mint and scarce 1940-64 : 1965-69 transition 6488 Case big congess. The case factory did not waste blades, shields or frames. If they had left overs they used them as the factory transitioned into the next era or even the next year. You will see the 1970 case congress knives with different numbers of dots on the blades. On this big congress you see xx era stamp (40-64) and the USA era stamp (64-69). The blades were not replaced, this is how they left the plant. The blades on this knife have awesome snap, opening, closing and on the half stops. Scales are chip and crack free.
The inside of this knife looks like it did when it left the factory in Bedford Pa 57 years ago. The interior of a knife can help tell you the true travels of a knife.
I would always request a picture of the blade bed when spending hundreds and thousands of dollars. If you collect the mint , transitions, xx era and usa era 6488 Case congress knives this is one to take a look at. Please feel free to ask any questions my name is george and thank you for looking at my knives.
