    I have that set I bought in early 80s for $60.00, don't know what they would sell for now but one of my older books from 86 list them for $125.00

    I am sure they have gone up quite a bit in 20 years. Does yours have the gold looking blades with dark delrin handles ? My box has a large plasic tree brand emblem glued on the outside.

    Yes, Same set sounds like. Nice gold looking plating
    on some of the blades. Also, like a crisscross pattern
    on the bottom of the back springs and divider.
    I like the way the box opens up,too.
    Wonder what they would charge in 2005 to make a set with
    that much workmanship invested?

    Box lids reminds me of scizzor jacks, the backsprings do have a thin working of some kind.

    As I said, the price I have is from a long time ago, I would say it would cost several hundred dollars (or more) to do this type work now.
