Serial Number 17
Rex Applegate estate
This was purchased from the estate auction of Col Rex Applegate by Author Leroy Thompson in 2000 and purchased by myself in 2002.
This from the estate auction of Rex Applegate. Page 103 in the Devine catalogue #349, made by R.D. Miller. I believe this is the prototype for all miniature smatchets made that were authorized by Rex.
Marked: M.M.S. NO. 17 and R.D. Miller Custom Knives on reverse
