Hi Rick, and welcome to the forum. I would need a picture of the knife to be able to tell you what it is.

Welcome aboard Rick.

It is hard to tell without seeing a picture.
If you can post a picture, we can probably tell you what you have.

On some of the Ulster they just missed putting model stamps on the blades.

It's only what someone is willing to pay.There is a few of the 580 turn up on Ebay and it depends on the condition of the knife.

Some of these were part of a Prince Albert tobacco promotion. There are those on this and a certain other Schrade forum who have posted many many times on this subject and on variations of this knife.

I have one like that with Ulster USA on the front of the blade with no 58OT on the back or front. The oldest ones have bone handles, milled liners, and 580 T on the back of the blade.

I need an excuse to show this one off every now and then.

Nice variety Shearer!
