85 - 88 with Boker tree ???

Post by Meridian_Mike » Fri Aug 16, 2019 12:43 pm

I'm not quite in tune with Boker anniversaries and such.... SO....
What does the 85 - 88 mean on each side of the tree?

When I got this one, it was black so I didn't see this until I cleaned it some.

Sorry for the poor pictures.
Recon that is bone scales?

They buried William in the old church yard, And Barbara there anigh him,
And out of his grave grew a red, red rose, And out of hers, a briar.....
They lapped and tied in a true love's knot. The rose ran around the briar.

Think it's a model number. Like Case has 6318.

Yep.... I recon so.... the pattern is too perfect.
I was wondering because one side was light and dull when I got it and then after some oil.... it darkened like the oil was soaking into the canals or something.

Thanks!!
