    I saw an older Buck Caper without a model number today. It had the Black phenolic handle with red spacers and no sheath. Can someone give a date range on this one. I am not a straight knife collector but do have a 119 and 120. This one was pretty rough.

    Without more information, I would guess before 1972.

    Bert,
    Thank you.
    It had 2 lines on the front Buck with USA below. The USA would designate that it as made in 1968 or later? So approximately 68 - 72?

    In 1967 Buck added the 'USA' to the stamp. Then in 1969 the spacer material was changed from red to burgundy micarta. DM
