Sometimes if someone is looking for a specific serial number you might be able to get a little better price. What is your Serial #? Should be on the bolster.

There were 11 Colonel Coon mule day knives, 1980-1990. Pics show all eleven. Seven out my 11 are number 395. I'm looking for the other 395's but it is the needle in the haystack. But, the fun is in the hunt. Sorry for the blurry pics. Took these a while back.

Mule Day knives are about like any other club knife. Have to find the right person that has a specific interest. In general the Colonel Coons go for more that the other mule day knives. You interested in selling them?
