    https://photos.app.goo.gl/G77KugRvnrdTNCYE6 This pocket knife is very interesting to me. It has real gold and silver. Also the bone is real. It is old and all maker's marks have been worn down. But its seeming to be a rare knife. Unfortunately I can't make complete identification. Please help.

    That's what it looks like.
    Sorry, OP, I don't see any gold or silver. I'd say brass liners & pins, and nickel bolsters. Nice knife, though. :):thumbsup:

    Yeah, that's a Queen half congress. There's no silver or gold on it. Also, the handle looks like Queen's synthetic version of their Winterbottom Bone to me, though the OP says it's real bone.

    There's 100% gold and 100%silver and real bone. The colsest one I saw was from the 1930' and had gold and silver also. Its
    So the markkng has worn off and stainless steel are patina.

    If it is a Queen Cutlery knife, unless the knife was after market customized, I highly doubt there is any gold or silver. You can take it to a jeweler who can do an acid test to confirm.

    I look forward to seeing more pictures. If there is any marking visible, I'm sure someone can help you with dating it. (1961-1971 Queen did not stamp the blade tangs, only etched the blade)

    Definitely not gold nor silver on this knife. Handles look synthetic to my eyes too (but without a better picture or handling it in person, can't say for sure).

    No gold, no silver, no bone. No more than 50 years old at best.

    This is the photo we're all seeing. It's just a well used old pocket knife made of brass, steel and some sort of synthetic.

    Perhaps you posted the wrong pic?
