Bob, I cannot find the 1998 Camillus, I thought I had one. I know I had one, but it is MIA today. I will continue to look. A very Happy Thanksgiving to you and your Family as well. We are all truly blessed and highly favored, we just need to realize it.

Eric, I've watched your auctions for these MIL-K 818 knives with a great intwrest, quite a collection, and a phenomenal price for the '49! Since you're clearly in the top of your field on these, perhaps you could answer a question. I have a few, maybe,10 of these knives. I've noticed one of my Imperials appears to be a 1969, with the second "9" clearly stamped over a "7". Have you seen one before? Perhaps, something of an oddity, or common,as they say? Again, great collection, many congrats!

Wally, First let me say thanks, they were a joy to find and haggle over. I was also shocked to see the price my Son realized on the 1949. He received a couple of quick offers in the $500 range when he first listed it. I told him that was a very good sign and to never sell early, better to wait and let the auction complete.

Your Imperial is fairly uncommon. I have seen a couple with your marking, there is also 1968 version with the "8" clearly stamped over a "7". In my opinion, the rarest Imperials to find are 1977-1979, very few were made.
