6375 Goodness

Picked this one up from a friend. He received this 6375 in 1973 from his Uncle who owned a hardware store in Georgia.
My friend told me he never did anything but take it out every now and then to show his buddies. When he found out I
collected Case knives, he said, "I have one you might want". We agreed on a price, and here she is. He is in his late 60's
now, and when I said, don't you want to hang on to this as a family keepsake, he told me that he would rather it go to
someone that would enjoy it, and appreciate it, because he never took it out of its drawer. Well, the right person bought
it, I can tell you that!

Nice one for sure! Those 75 pattern knives are a handful of goodness. Thanks for showing it and thanks for giving it a good home.

Beautiful knife. One of my favorite patterns too. Nice to have the box, wrapping paper and story of the knife (provenance) to go with it. Is that "$15.00" that I think I see hand written on the side of the box? :D ::tu:: ::tu::

I have the exact same knife! ::tu::
I was at a flea market in Blairsville Georgia about 20 years ago and an older gentleman who owned a hardware store was selling his inventory.
He had several Case knife displays full of new old stock knives.
The 6375 had a price of $15.00 and I got it for $30.00.
Those days are gone forever.

Thanks Herb! And yes, that is $15.00 you see. This is the original box that held six knives. My friend told me his uncle had a small
display in his counter, and kept the bulk boxes underneath..
