Help identifying this Winchester knife??

Winchester entered the knife market as a manufacturer in 1919 by acquiring two existing knife companies; Eagle Knife Co. of Connecticut & Napanoch Knife Co. of New York. Winchester stepped away from the market in 1942 to focus on war related manufactured products, but re-entered in the late 1980s by licensing its name to Blue Grass Cutlery. Blue Grass had high quality knives made by Queen Cutlery that featured the Winchester brand name for a handful of years until the license arrangement ran its course. Winchester eventually started licensing to other companies & now you will find the brand name used by several knife manufacturers by way of license agreements.

I acquired this through a, and I haven't been able to find anything on it. I'm coming up completely blank. Can anyone when this was made? Is it custom made? Is it actually worth something??

If you put Winchester knife and the number on the back of the blade into any search engine, you will find them for sale on Ebay for about $11 or less. Not old, not rare, not custom, not even Winchester.
