The exposed rivet one is the one I got for $10.00 at a Gun and Knife Show in Dayton, Ohio.

A guy had a table set up with a bunch of odds and ends and the box was closed with the knife in it...All I knew was that it was the oldest Victorinox box I had ever seen, so I asked to open the box and it was the first exposed rivet Vic I had ever seen and it had never been used, so I asked how much he wanted, and he obviously had no idea what it was.

I could not believe it when the guy said he wanted $10.00 for it......you have probably never seen anyone get a ten dollar bill out of their wallet as fast as I did......it was the best deal I have ever gotten on a knife. :D

A lot of wonderful pictures and storage ideas...I love it. I personally hope that this thread ends up in the collectors sub-forum. There is a lot of knowledge all you folks can share/teach/demonstrate!

Myron,
Isn’t Hamilton a superb watch. I also have several Railroad Hamilton pocket watches. From 1890-1945, the engineering that went into making those is really special. No other watch “sound” as good as a Hamilton...the movement/pallet sounds are perfect. Only a watch enthusiast would understand what I mean; it is comparable to the VIC Snap sound.   :cheers: :D

On my phone right now...but I do have a few shelf queens. If I am going to use something, I always get a second user.

I can post a few photos later.

Why didn't I think of ColoSwiss when I started this thread? :think:

I do wonder what other gems are hidden in a drawer somewhere Colo :pok:

Have you ever managed to take a pic of the complete collection?
Or is it just too big?

Some wonderful stuff above, and good thread!  :tu:

I guess most of my shelf queens are actually in a box inside a box queens... Everything else is on El DIY displays... There are only a few I that I absolutely won't EDC on the displays...
