Camillus Boy Scout knives

The Camillus Cutlery Company was one of the oldest knife manufacturers in the United States with roots dating back to 1876. The company manufactured Camillus branded knives and was a prolific contractor for other knife brands up until its last days in 2007 when the company filed for bankruptcy.

It was planned to release 12 models, but the series was not completed.
#BSA002 (BSA #1002) "Tomorrow's Leader" - 1997
#BSA064 (BSA #1064) "All Together" - 1998
#BSA787 (BSA #1787) "On My Honor" - 1999
#BSA830 (BSA #1830) "Guiding Hand" - 2000

....I have an old one that has the compass in the handle and the 4 line stamp which someone on here told me was the first model, this one looks like it may be the next variation with that type shield,probably early '40's, if it has the 4 line stamp???............... ::tu:: .............
