I came across this knife at a thrift store in Wyoming can anyone help me with age and model. It's marked Dickinson Sheffield on the blade and it looks to be a picture of a screw I think on the other side blade. If any one can help me greatly appreciate it.

The ball end cap bolster is an old style. My guess is circa 1850 for age.

Goins shows E M Dickenson Sheffield c 1870-1953.He also shows the screw marking as ca. 1882.

I did not check Goins so my guess of circa 1850 is likely not correct and 1880's is likely more accurate.
