Hi Guys- picked this up at an antique shop the other day.  Photos are in as found condition, uncleaned.  I only know enough to be dangerous so I have a few questions.  I believe these ones with wood pommels are earlier, any idea what year it was made? Im assuming first half of 43 or earlier?  I havent seen one with a wood pommel before...are these tougher to find?  Any idea on value?

 

Thanks!

pretty rough shape, they really are not that hard to find but its an example, right!? value in that condition ...maybe $30-$40.

There actually is a generic dating system to these knives, your Robeson was manufactured in the second half of 1943 into the first half of 1944. the scabbards too.
