That is a neat set especially that you have the original sheath and box. What's interesting are the two different tang stamps, both from the same era.
Queen used more than a few different stamping in the 40's and 50's.

Here's a Queen 4" #31 Half Congress. Winterbottom bone that has aged nicely. This one was someone's EDC years ago as you can see from the blade wear. I carried it to work today and used it on occasion. I'm not a fan of the congress pattern for EDC but the half congress, with only two blades is so thin, that it worked for me. It's now a part of my rotation.

Thanks.
Nice pen knife. Seeing your knife made me realize that I don't have one knife with pearl handles. Might have to change that. ::nod::

Hey GUYS, thought I would post my newly pickup here. Very special and Rare knife
Very few and far between in my opinion!! I have been doing ebay day in and day out, for over 7yrs now and I have NOT came across This Queen City pattern before. For those that do NOT know,,This is called WINTERBOTTOM bone. Knife is a real handful at 4 1/4" closed.

Its an Awesome knife to me, that should be posted right here on aapk for everyone to enjoy. I would love to see a catolog picture of it,,,But I dont have a Queen book that will show it,,,anybody??

The only catalogs pics I have are below as there were MANY variations of these knives,,including flat/round bolsters, Different shields, Long pull or not, steel lined or brass, Etc.
Knife may have had a clip blade at one time, very difficult to tell either way.
Thx Mark
