Reproduction Boyt 43
Mark 2 USN sheath
Current Boyt 43 USN repro along side unmarked current repro sheath.
Note the similar construction methods and hardware used. They both came from the same source.
Construction methods and hardware are identical in both examples.
Scovill MFG. Co. marked snaps so marked on the current examples.
S M Co marked female snap end on the current sheath.
New stamping on the left with original on the right. Very close using the correct font and size. The only difference is in the thickness of the letters. Without a known original you will not likely be able to tell them apart in a few years.
A second view of the new on left and original on right.
Original thin lettering on left, current repro in center and thick original on the right.
All are Boyt 43 stamped as well.
Same as above.
Current reproduction stamping
Original Boyt 43 stamping. Note the subtle differences in the two above photos. The new repro stamp is very close to the original. The shape of the 4 is different and the spacing on the Boyt is different as well. On the repro the y in Boyt touches the 3.
Note the difference in the rivet holding the retainer strap in place. The original on the left uses a larger flat rivet while the repro uses a smaller domed rivet.
Original on left has a blued brass snap while the current repro uses bright brass hardware.
