Winchester 2855 pattern info

Postby 58chevy348 » Tue Jul 10, 2018 5:52 pm

Just got this knife in. It is a Winchester Knife with pattern number 2855. Researching online has revealed very little about Winchester’s pattern numbers, how to decipher them, and dates of manufacture. Any info would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

1920 to 1940 I didn't check a book but that is about the date for the original Winchesters.

And only $17.60 a dozen.
I think we need to get a group and buy a dozen. I'm sure we could find 12 people that want one of those!
