Thanks for the welcome Old Folder.... & yes, I also collect folding rules made by Connecticut firms such as Chapin, Stephens, Stanley & Upson Nut.
Tom, thanks also for your welcome. Checked for your PM, but it didn't come thru. When I clicked on the PM link, I get:

Dinadan, I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. Maybe a new thread should be started pairing up knives with other tools?
tongueriver, I went back to the catalog. The 8803 is stated to be offered only in Stag Bone or Mother of Pearl handles.
The 8814 is stated to come in the various celluloid handles. Altho really can't tell by the photos, mine does have a green hue to the color,
so it seems to match the 8814G.
I felt it would be an interesting comparison to put two knives made nearly 80 years apart next to each other made by related companies.
