Anyone out there collect Case XX knives? I don't, but my Brother has a few and wondered what they may be worth, or where to find some good info. I can possibly take some pics if necessary. Thanks. :smile:
In 1970, Case added ten dots beneath the “U.S.A” on all knife tangs. Each year a dot was removed. In 1980, the same dating system was used. The differences are the “lightning” form of the “s” in “Case” and “USA,” as well as the placement of the dots above the “USA.” From 1990 to mid-1993, the actual date was stamped on the tang. The dot system was used again from mid-1993 through 1999. In 2000, Case introduced a new tang date stamp: five Xs and five dots. From 2001 through 2005, one dot is removed each year. From 2006 through 2009, an X is removed each year.
