Early Case Bradford made by Miller Brothers?????

The W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company has a very rich history that began in 1889 when William Russell (“W.R.”), Jean, John, and Andrew Case began fashioning their knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. The company has produced countless treasures and it continues to do so as one of the most collected brands in the world.

I've recently seen this knife on the bay. I have never heard of Case having knives made by Miller Brothers. I know in the early years, Case did contract out some knives, but Miller Brothers??? Hoping someone can enlighten me. It appears in the images that the blades have been swapped at some point (looking at the bolster pin).
