A.G. Russell Swing guards made by Boker questions

Postby Papas-toybox » Wed Jun 12, 2019 1:48 am

OK, all you Boker aficionados. I have researched these 4 knives and have gotten nowhere. Here's a picture before I discuss specifics on each knife:
20190611_203000.jpg


Top left is model RUS-682AW. Does not have an emblem in the scales.
Bottom Left is Model RUS-682BB. It also does not have an emblem in the scales.
Top right is model RUS-682BO. It has a Boker tree shield with the registered mark making it post 1975
Bottom right is Model RUS-682ST (Guessing this might mean Stag handle). It has the Boker Solingen Shield on the scale which dates it in the 80's.

All 4 knives only have A.G.Russell on one side of the ricasso and Germany on the other. There are no other markings on any of the knives.
The boxes are identical, but only the two knives with Boker Shields have any paperwork in them and it shows Boker USA.

Anyone out there able to provide me with more information on these including value? I am swinging in the dark here as the only place that shows any information on these is Worthpoint, which I refuse to pay them for information.

Thanks,
Bob

Found a little info, but still no values. Wondering if I should use Boker values for these Russells?
682AW is Amboyna Burl Wood.
682BB is Jigged Bone
682BO is Bog Oak
682ST is Deer Stag.
