Yas! While I do like having examples of the pattern from every era, all the better when the knife has all of the original bling with it. Estimating the date of manufacture by putting together all of the clues given makes it much more sure in dating engineering changes on the knives themselves. To paraphrase Bernard, "Read the knife, the box, the papers, the sheath and the shipping materials".
By the way, if anyone really needs the correct papers for a 162UH / Schrade Cutlery Corp. (address 30 Canal Street, Ellenville, N.Y.), speak up. They came as "gimmes" with this NIB knife and I don't need them.
