Sorry, I can not guarantee the exact date but Buck research indicates about the markings indicates this is the correct timing. The use and care sheet is dated 4-4-72 if that is helpful to potential buyers. The box is in very good shape. The packing paper and documentation are folded and clear. The knife has not been cleaned nor polished.
It just received a soft cloth wipe before these photos were taken. There is a dull greenish patina on the brass parts, which I have told is to be expected.The knife was always stored indoors at room temperature. Unlike many of today's lightweight pocket knives, this is a substantial tool. However I hope someone will give this one a good home in their collection to admire as a USA Classic.
There is a scratch on the leather holder flap. Left side as you look at it. FYI - It's not as obvious in the photos as it is in person.
