If you have a good magnifying glass or loupe, take a close look and see if there is any indication of woven fabric design in the handle surface. I don't know enough about the knife to comment further except to say it looks like it would be an excellent hunting knife.

I have seen the early Northwoods with Micarta but never with a blonde wood. Micarta can show a grain much like wood. I have been fooled in the past, thinking 'gotta be wood' but it actually was an ivory Micarta.
"Value" is a reasonable question and AAPK is a most reasonable association of fine folk.
Knife & sheath are as good as a BRK knife and the new prices for this size start about $220.
But if you are selling it, value is what someone will pay you which here would be $150 or a bit less.
