I looked through this forum and did not see any 77's discussed so I thought I would show this one. It is the 1960's through late 1970' tang stamp. It looks like a miniature 72 which is why it caught my eye. A tiny little knife.

Although the blade arrangement is similar between the 77 & 72, the frames are of different patterns. I think it is the frame that might make one knife be similar to another.

I got fooled by one of those. The auction was about to close at a low price so I jumped on it without reading and was shocked when it arrived. Camillus called it the "Midget Stockman" and it's a sister to the Schrade 108OT which I carried for several years back in the late '60s - early '70s. My 77 has since gone to Trinidad to live with Paul (Edgewise).

Thanks gentlemen. They looked a lot alike and I thought they might be kin. It actually told me it wanted to be a 72 when it got big.
