    I am trying to find a manufacture date and value for a case xx it has a matching sheath also marked case xx. On one side of the knife it has Case * XX on the other P62 41/2 and USA under that. I have been told that it is a boot knife it is in very good shape.

    If it says
    CASE XX
    U.S.A on the main blade then it is from 1965-1969. If Im not mistaken i think thats when Case made the boot knife.

    Actually, that knife was made in the 1980s, not the USA era. Here's a link to a couple on Ebay:

    Actually I believe (am almost 100% certain) that they introduced this pattern in 1979, so the first ones would have the CASE XX/USA stamping without dots - remember they did not start dotting hunting knives until 1980 wit the lightning S stamp.

    The boot knife continued in production until the mid or late 90's.

    Like I said the one side has the word case and one dot between the XX. The word stainless below that and USA below that. The other has the P62-41/2 below that is the SS. The sheath is a medium brown weave!

    No that would make it a 1989 - remember, Case never put dots on hunting knives during the 70's.

    A 1979 made hunting knife will have the CASE XX USA (no dots) stamp just like one made in 1965. Apparently, the hunters were not collected like the pocket knives were, so they did not use the early "dots" on them.

    Then starting with the "Lightning S" stamp in 1980, they used it on both pocket knives and hunting knives. They even started putting dots on kitchen knives in 1980.
