Welcome to AAPK Tom, your description narrows it down to about 50 knives. Almost impossible to evaluate without a picture. Get an over all picture, a close up of the tang stamp and make sure you get both sides. I bet with that someone on here can help you. Good luck.

Welcome aboard Jar Head. Was 69 the year you went in or the year you got out?

I don't know jack about Bokers but there are some knowledgeable people who can probably help you. Doglegg is right. We're going to need some decent pictures (sorry, no indecent pictures).

Here's all I have on Boker.

Bokers made in Solingen, Germany are more valuable than those made in USA. I think Boker USA knives were made in the US for a while but not recently. In my experience, the Boker USA knives are very well made. But they don't sell for much. Probably $15 for a user, maybe $20 if in mint condition.
