You have the first style knife with the up swept tip that I understand kept breaking off so they changed it. I don't think anyone has produced a reproduction. Here is a previous thread on this knife and there is one photo of this knife with the same reversed stamped lettering that they refer to as a variation.

That looks original to me. These are/were awful knives. The tips broke off quite easily, they didn't hold an edge well and rusted quickly...

It is used and a small portion of the tip is broken off.
I can only guess that the went in the wrong way into the stamping machine.
I wonder how many were manufactured that way?

the upside down marking is common enough so that particular variation doesn't add a premium to the knife value. I have both the early and late versions, and see them for sale on a regular basis on ebay. Asking prices and selling prices seem to average around $50-$60.
