Summary: 1st Edition Randall “Vietnam Veteran”, extremely low serial #5. (serial #1 and #2 were both ivory so you do the math) Knife is near mint with just a few very light wipe marks on the guard.
The Johnson smoothback sheath is in excellent+++ or better condition with just a few handling marks The throat is pretty much clean, the knife was obviously not stored in the sheath. Randall stamp and “8” (blade length) on the back belt loop.
These rarely come up for sale; I’ve had a few, but this is the last I have for sale. Valued in 2014 at about $4000 as per RMK Dealer Gary Clinton. (that’s also in line with what I’ve sold others for... 3.8k to 4.5k depending on serial number)
10 photos for review – as shown, a black canvas carry case is included. These 1st Edition Model 1 Vietnam Veteran’s are extremely hard to find for sale , scrimmed by Ron Skaggs and limited to 100 pieces. Very low serial number on this one, perfect for collection / investment purposes. Thanks and good luck.
