Welcome to AAPK. I believe your knife is a Case Classic, not a Case. If so it was made by Queen. The best way to find a value is an advanced search of eBay sold listings. Search for Case Classic Toenail knife, or similar.

That will give you a ballpark estimate. If there were only 10 with that handle material you probably won't find one exactly like it but you'll find other similar knives from which you can get an idea what yours is worth. The number made doesn't necessarily make it more valuable.

Very nice elephant toe case! I question the term "ivory"" however, I'm not sure a manatee has any ivory parts on it. It looks more like fossil bone from a manatee, Maybe just what Case used for a name of the material, nice anyway. I could be wrong. I have run across very old whale bone that looks a lot like your knife's scales. Also Stellar Sea Cow bone is similar but expensive. ::handshake:: Terry

I wince every time I see these Parker Cases. Nearly every prototype, exotic number, one of , were at one time themselves handled in a gassing celluloid. They are unique as such, but are not as advertised, but a Parker recovery scheme, with after market printing of certification and etching.

I have no dog in the hunt. They are well made because Bill Howard was overseeing production of them at Queen.

Nice knife, no matter. ::handshake::

That Elephant Toe kind of reminds me of this one that I posted in the Marbles Pocket Knives thread:
