#14 was not part of the Indian stag line, but the color of the handle is similar to the 70s (in addition, I would like to see a stamp).
Normally, Vit is spot on when it comes to Camillus knives. I'm sorry to say that is not the case in this instance. The 14's did have Indian Stag handles.

Indian Stag was introduced in 1973-1974 on mostly the stockman. It doesn't show up on 14s that I could find in any of the catalogs but as you can readly see on this long line, It does exist.
I can't agree with you, Jerry. I was not talking about the type of the handle texture, but about a separate knives line called "Indian Stag."
Otherwise, these knives could also be called Indian Stag.

And I was just talking about the handles. Sometimes confusion abounds.

Picked up this minty Camillus Yellow Jacket, marked 7 on pile side of tang, I think it's a 711 pattern. I was surprised at how well it was made, nice knife.
