Hi Allen, AFAIK, the FRN Dragonfly was AUS-8 for about 10 years and only went to VG-10 a couple years ago ('08 or '09). The only FRN D'flys that are "somewhat" rare are the "1st Generation" ones with the narrow hollow ground blade, like the serrated one at the extreme right in this photo.

Isn't that middle one a Santa Fe Stoneworks Dragonfly?
I've seen similar ones at KC.
