Boker created and released the Great American Story Knives right around the American Bicentennial (1976). In all, 24 different knife models were produced. The dates of manufacture were as follows: The Series I knives were made and released from May 1974 to July 1976. The Series II knives were produced and released August 1976 to June 1978. The knives are a variety of two and three bladed folders with carbon steel blades and oversized shields set in the handles. The handles range from Delrin to Bone to Stag, and the Sheilds and Bolsters are usually Silver in color. The Sheilds are stamped with a scene and usually a small amount of writing. The knives came new with boxes and Certificates of Authenticity. The big knife blade was usually stamped with the model number such as 1776 for The Golden Spike large Stockman knife.
The current (2004) average values are in the neighborhood of $20.00 - $35.00 each.
