It would be better if we could enlarge the photos but I can still see that it is not an original antique New York Knife Company knife. Being a "repro" it will not bring anywhere near what an original would and I'm not sure NYK even actually made that pattern.

I have a razor barlow pattern knife stamped Hammer Brand/New York Knife Co. that came in a similar box. I know Schrade released a series of these right toward the end of their 100 year legacy. They were sold for a very short period of time and somewhat hard to find these days. The problem is I don't think that your pattern was one of the ones released. And the one's that were which I have seen all had stag scales. It might be a Taylor-Schrade in the wrong box. Right after 2004 Taylor was selling Hammer Brand and New York Knife Co. knives made in China. If it's from the original company then the box should say "Made in the USA" on it and "USA" should be stamped on the New York Knife Co. side of the blade.
