R7423 dating..new to forum

The Remington Corporation and the knives that they built have influenced the U.S. cutlery industry more than nearly any other manufacturer. From the time America was settled, to the end of WWI, American knife companies struggled to compete with Britain and German imports, but events that occurred during and after the First World War led to a great change in this phenomenon. Unprecedented opportunities arose, and Remington stepped up to seize the moment. In the process, they created some of today's most prized collectables. In an ironic twist, the next World War played the greatest role in ending the company’s domination of the industry.

Dating is typically done from the tang stamp, so a clear, close-up picture of the tang stamp is usually required. This might help you: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=39799&start=15#p386811

Thanks again for your help and useful info two flowers. Looks like it's circa 1935-1940.
