Old time CASE quality with nickel silver liners and pinned oval CASE shield. This knife has the rare large tang stamp. This stamp is only found on a few 6254 SSP trapper made from 1970 to 1972. All the dots are not visible but based on the position of the visible dots, I believe that it is an 8 dot 1972 stamp. A MINT knife, never sharpened, carried, or cleaned. Original factory finish and edges. The blades have strong snap, no wobble. Nice red bone handles. Handles are perfect with no cracks. This knife includes an old-style CASE factory gift box.
