Yes, the US Marine Corps. marked pocket knives are WWII. Some are marked on the bail and some are not. Kingston made both the Army and Marine Corps. knives whether they are marked Kingston or not. Stevenson is the other maker of these WWII knives and they are marked US on the scales, one side or both, and "Stevenson" on the bail. All the WWII knives of this type have brass liners. The only (as far as I know) post war knife that has brass liners is marked "Ulster-48" on the bail. (clevis is the correct term) and I never know if it's bail or bail. I enjoy collecting these little knives.

What kind of value would you put on the US Marine Corp knives?

Well, condition is important, so the estimate of worth is a little broad.  I see them on ebay from $40-65.  I think I paid around $80 for one a few years ago
