I have a very nice, MINT CONDITION, ANTIQUE SMOOTH BONE SCALED CASE XX MODEL 6488-SS, LARGE CONGRESS POCKET KNIFE with a RARE BOWTIE NICKEL- SILVER with XX SHIELD. The LARGE "88" PATTERN CONGRESS KNIFE is a hard-to-find knife that CASE had dropped from production for years and now they make it in what seems to be limited production runs! This is a "SISTER" KNIFE to the PROTOTYPE THAT I HAVE LISTED; EXACTLY the SAME except for the ENGRAVED BOLSTERS and the PROTOTYPE STAMP ON THE INSIDE OF THE BRASS LINER! FLAG BOX with OLDER STYLE PAPERWORK!
This KNIFE does not appear to have been USED, CARRIED or SHARPENED and is in TOP-NOTCH CONDITION with some minor blade rub from opening and closing! This KNIFE is 4-1/8 inches long closed; and it has the more rarely used LONG NAIL-PULLS! This KNIFE has NICKEL-SILVER BOLSTERS, PINS & BOWTIE "XX" SHIELD, BRASS LINERS & SCALE PINS, CASE'S TRU SHARP STAINLESS STEEL BLADES & SPRINGS plus the GORGEOUS SMOOTH ANTIQUE BON E SCALES! There are 5-X's & 1-Dot on the main blade tang indicating a 2004 date of making. There are no cracks, splits or pin cracks in the scales.This KNIFE WAS MADE BY THE W. CASE & SONS CUTLERY COMPANY of BRADFORD, PENNSYLVANIA whose SKILLED ARTISANS HAVE BEEN MAKING WORLD CLASS CUTLERY for over 125 years. CASE KNIVES are HANDCRAFTED with OVER 140 or more HAND OPERATIONS GOING INTO THE MAKING OF EACH KNIFE. I only sell to buyers in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
