The black handled knife dates from 1947-1957.
Not sure what the deal is with the flat bolstered knife.

The jigged bone on these is beautiful,gotta love aged dyed jigged bone.nice knives!!
As far as value thats subjective..its worth what some-ones willing to pay ya for em,and that my friend is detrmined by condition.i agree w bill that one or 2 i see are worth 150.ea,one or two look like ya could get 200 for.but they're not that rare thanks to the internet.the double edged sword of the auto knife collector.
