I really like older carbon steel scissors, I'm mostly a vintage Wiss user, but am wanting to build my collection of Case and Boker scissors, as well as Sheffield made examples. I'm also starting to collect electrician's scissors. I really want a Wiss 175E, but I also need some with "BELL SYSTEM" markings. Most of them seem to be the 175E, but I've also seen a few other brands.

Let me know your interest, the 8 inch has long tail Case stamp, while the 20-7 has a short tail Case stamp. Both have some patina on inside of blades, both cut perfectly.

I have been picking up old scissors for years. I have quite a few but they are scattered in drawers around the house. Let me know if you might want to buy a bunch of them for a most reasonable price. You might find another brand you want to collect, like Henckels or Kissing Crane or Sta-Sharp.

Hi scissor-seeker :) my uncle worked for Bell telephone for many years; my grandmother(his mom) still has a couple pairs floating around the house somewhere, still no rust-I'm going to see what their markings are for you, maybe share a pic or two...p.s. Scissors also a very neat interest ::tu::
