Have no idea about the date but I feel pretty sure it was during the time Queen made the Coon knives. ::hmm::

I would guess that one to be early to mid 80's. Definitely an original Columbia City, TN Adrian Harris coon. Not a Queen. Nice knife. Like to have that one if you ever decide to let it go.
