    Hi Everyone, I'm a newbe to knife forum.I was looking through some of the topics and
    saw something on MSA folders.I wasn't sure what I had,but after being on ebay.I thought
    i had a Marbles,but wasn't sure. I would like to thank Melxin Purvis for information, i read
    about Jim Behring knowing a lot about Marbles knives.I e-mailed Jim pictures of what i
    had.He e-mailed me back.Stating I had an old Marbles folder.He stated I had a NO # 83
    safety folder with pearl handles and a blood groove.Made around 1911.He also stated that it was a rare find.
    I got more curious and also e-mailed Marbles T. Brinkley confirmed
    what Jim had told me.George e-mailed the pictures to Dennis Moberg.And referred me to
    Dennis Moberg for an appraisal.Waiting for appraisal to come back.My Grand father car-
    ried this knife for years.It was his favorite hunting knife. Got the appraisal back, a "con-
    servative",$2,200.00 to $2,500.00.I have had two very nice offers so far.I would like to
    thank all those involved with helping me find the information.

    Thanks Bill

    Howdy WildBill!

    Heck of a piece you have there. I'd say that could bring an easy $3000 on the open market, and should probably be insured for triple that.

    Just got back from 2 weeks of fishing in Alaska and had to check in....low and behold one of the "holy grail's" has turned up! If those pearl slabs are original (which they look like they are) I can turn that knife for an easy $5500. right now... and the buyer would be happy as a clam...or a salmon for that matter!
    If you get the urge...just let me know.
