Case Canoe transition set

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 bought this in 1989 and was wondering what the current value would be.
Pardon the cobweb. :mrgreen:

eBay sold listings are probably be your best reference for pricing.

Looks like this set sold for $350.

This set is currently listed with a starting bid of $300 with 4 days left in the auction. Guess we'll see what it goes for in a few days.

I hate to suggest this, but you might make more if you sold the knives individually. As a collector, I prefer a complete set but there are a lot of people who will want just one of those Canoes and they will pay more individually for the one they want rather than the entire set.

I figured they would sell better if sold individually.
I still have the boxes for them and the COA.
Thanks so much for the information! ::handshake::
I haven't decided yet what to do wit them.
