The opposite is true.
The Woodcraft series (#881-887) was produced approximately from 1988 to 1999 (excluding #885). The first run had handles without pins and crossed swords tang stamp (perhaps the #887 is an exception, since I have never seen it with crossed swords tang stamp). In 1990-1991, pins appeared and crossed swords were replaced with a standard tang stamp. In my opinion, the knife shown in the first photo is a transitional model made just during this period.
