What is PCR2 on a Queen blade ?

The Queen Cutlery Company manufactured knives in Titusville Pennsylvania for 96 years. The company opened its only factory there in 1919 and commenced to make some of the best US crafted cutlery you will find. Unfortunately, the Titusville manufacturing plant closed down in 2018.

Has anyone any knowledge of the term, "PCR2" on a Queen blade etch? Here it is on the main blade of a 1995, 2-blade, Physician's knife. Thanks J.O'.

Ridgegrass,
PCR2 according to the 1995 Queen catalog is a Painter Crown Red doctor's knife 3 5/8" closed. PCR describes the bright red acrylic handle material.
