Case never made an official Boy Scout knife until the year 2005, so a "Tested" era official Case Boy Scout knife would obviously be a fake.
Dimitri has it right that the frame for the ebay knife appears to be from an L.F.& C. official Boy Scout knife.
I have attached below a picture that has one of the original L.F.& C. official Boy Scout knives like the one I suspect was used for the doner frame. The bolsters are a bit different so I'm not positive more than two knives were canabalized to produce this hunk-o-junk now offered for sale.
I have also attached my only example of the style of Case knife that apparently was utliized for the spear blade and the can opener blade.
Also posted below is a poor picture of the first official Boy Scout knives that Case produced in 2005. I added them cause I like showing em off.
Thanks for all the replys.
