My personal opinion would be Bakelite. It's harder then many plastics and doesn't tend to shrink like the other mid-century plastics. Camillus and Utica both used it for a few years, but then it just seemed to go away.
I like it, not sure why they quit using it, it's far better then the shrinky dink plastics.
