I think you said in another thread the other day that you had had a few GECs and had gotten rid of them because they didn't appeal to your eye. Further, I think you said you were more attracted to Case and Schrade.
I have several GEC knives and like them quite a lot but I do have to say that they do not have the eye appeal of the Case, Schrade, Queen, and Schatt & Morgan knives of old along with other knives such as the old Imperials, Camillus etc..
Aren't you waiting for one or two #66 patterns? Wait until you get them before comiting to the #56 even with the copperhead bone. I'll admit though that the covers of a knife can give light to or kill a knife as far as appearance goes.
I know you like jack knives. Now, you've gotta admit that you'd have to go a long ways to beat the looks of your Case 6292 Texas Jack. Hmmmmm, maybe you ought to be keeping a look out for another Case jack knife or perhaps a Schrade jack knife.
Just my thoughts. Good luck with your quest for a knife with the copperhead covers.
