The next clues...No box & the seller is based in Denver , CODougC-3 wrote:If problems were encountered with the production run before the edges were ground, it would not have made any sense to go on and grind the edges.

I'm not a worker or really even a collector, but, while we're waiting on a more educated reply, I won't let that hold me back I don't think most serious collectors would place much value on this. I think it would be more in the category of a rare coin which would be extremely valuable in mint condition but worth very little to collectors if damaged, worn out, or rejected by the mint because of an imperfection. Since it was never in production, I think you still have a complete collection. I think this sample would be more in the rare souvenir category and as such would be worth little money but would be very highly prized by some of us Spyderco nuts.kosta wrote:I thought I have all mules.
