I am new to collecting pocket knives, however ive loved them since I was a little boy. I just bought this one from a co-worker for 35$ Its a case commemorative/Buford Pusser, and
even I know 35$ is more than a steal on any vintage case knife in mint cond. But I would really appreciate it if anyone could tell me what they think its worth. Also please don't feel bad for my partner at work, he already owes me money for a plane ticket I helped him w/ last year. Im just getting my money back any way I can. Thanks

according to voyle's book on commemoratives - $50 for as new with box. you might check ebay completed listings to see if one like yours has been sold.

I've seen those bring as much as $165 on ebay in the past.

You bought that knife for less than you can buy a new, regular production Case trapper retail. Not a bad buy. 8)

By the way, Isn't that my beagle you got there?!!!! :lol:

Just curious Jonet, when was Voyle's published? I can't think of many people on here that would not snag that one for a mear $ 50!

1995 p&t. i then did a search of completed sales on ebay. an average price for a case knife. not written in stone.

"Im just getting my money back any way I can" You said.

I think that plane ticket cost more than $35.00.

Perhaps he has some more knives you can get.
