I got this recently at a yard sale for 40.00. The leather sheath says Pat. Feb. 5 1935 and the knife has a pullout ruler that has a patent date of oct,22 1935 on it. The Axe is stamped Case XX and is in awesome shape. These are both very sharp and well taken care of. I was wondering if these are rare and if they hold any significant value. Why is the blade stamp and sheath stamp have different dates? Any info would help either way I find it a cool piece.

I wouldn't worry about the dates being off a little. You just bought about $300-400 worth of Case Collectible for $40. Go celebrate!

Glad to hear you plan on collecting. Its unfortunate the lady didn't know what she had, but then you didn't know if you were getting a deal or not. For the condition yours appears to be in, I think if you check fleabay you'll find that price is fairly accurate though your mileage may vary. Congratulations and welcome to AAPK and knife collecting!
