I recently snagged this J.D. Case jack on a non-fleabay auction (or maybe it snagged me). As you can see in the attached pictures, the imitation ivory (celluloid?) scales have shrunk, leaving UGLY gaps next to the bolsters, and are starting to curl away from the liners (last pic). I have given thought to just trying to fill those gaps in, but that would just be a temporary fix, and probably would look like crap. I do hate looking at those nasty gaps, but I assume this is a somewhat rare knife, and maybe I should probably just leave it alone. Thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. I did find a picture of what looks like this exact knife on page 21 of Tom McCandless's book OLD KNIVES, XX,AND MORE
