Camillus "Lucky Dice" Toothpick

I would have never guessed Camillus made a fancy toothpick but I'm glad to see they did... :D

Trying to figure a time frame, the bolsters, swedge and etch have me thinking late 1920's to 1940..?

Beautiful bone on that toothpick Bob.
Don't know how that etching has survived all these years, but glad for you that it did. ::nod::
