Summary: the photos and details above tell the story....
This is a very rare Lile Regular 7 with the early "James B. Lile" script signature and hand-written tag by Marily that reads "1-Only #7 1968". Thick stag slabs with patina on the brass rivets, mint condition.
The pouch sheath is unmarked and an extremely early version of the shop issue ambidextrous sheaths. Knife sheath fit is perfect, the knife does not "jiggle" around when fully inserted in to the sheath. Condition is excellent+++ or better, just a few light handling / storage marks.
6 photos for review -- a new black canvas carry case will be included. If you're looking for a mint condition, stag handled, very early 1-only Lile Reg 7 and original sheath for your collection.... buy it. I have several Reg 7's up for sale, this is by far the pick of the litter. Thanks and good luck.
