Marbles Jet Pilot Knife in original box


Recommended Posts

Hi folks. New to the forums but not new to collecting. I snagged this in March from Craigslist. It came from the estate of a former Navy corpsman (via his cousin) who served in Vietnam and was issued this knife. Original box. 6" unmarked Marbles.

She offered it to her son who said he wasn't interested in it. A local dealer said it was worth $50-$75 so they put it on Craigslist for $125. I didn't know it was Marbles but I did know it was likely a very early JPSK (research and help after). The bottom of the box was pretty badly split open along 3 sides and had the top layers of cardboard torn up inside where it had ripped. I used some non acidic crafter's glue, Q-tips, and fine point paint brushes to get it stabilized for display; I won't put it back into the lid again because it is a terribly tight fit and would likely resplit the seams.
