Nice dream, Explorer! I'm sure you'll find one 73 Explorer finally (Victoria stamped blade, clip point small blade, 5 loop corkscrew, pre c.76 style scissors). It looks like they actually made in 1973 Champion, Modeler, Passenger and Explorer, we discussed 1973 Modelers and Champions in Vintage SAK Owners Club(Image removed from quote.)
You should join Vintage SAK Owners Club.Jazzbass said he seen Victoria era Explorers so I believe they started together with Champion in 1973.(Image removed from quote.)
Where did you find that treasure and how much did it cost? Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk
Picked it up at an estate sale for a cool five dollars
I’d love to do some more digging but I don’t know where to look other than SAKwiki.
Better?? Unfortunately the Wiki is not great on dates generally - So thanks so much for initiating this thread and the infornmation JNOXYD
Score! Beats the mid-'80s Explorer I got at an estate sale for $8.
