    I have this older Western folding lockback that I bought, I'm
    thinking 30 or so years ago.

    I had it all this time and several years ago while bow hunting,
    (on a very cold day) I over-shot a buck and was attempting
    to get my broadhead out of a tree.
    Well I broke the blade. :( All these years later, I would like to
    get a blade back in it. I know it may be impossible to get an
    original blade, I dont know?

    I know that Coleman bought out Western Cutlery and then over
    to Camillus and know their no longer made, (Western) as far as I know.

    Also, with the (S-532) on the blade and as in the pics below, there
    is a (C) on it and thinking it is the date code it was made? I bought
    it new back, thinking in the early "80's".

    I'm looking to have a new blade put back into it and was wondering
    if you, Bill or anyone else would have "ANY" suggestions?
    I appreciate any and all input!
    Thanks,
    Dale

    Another question Bill, If memory serves me correctly I'm thinking I paid
    around 50-$60 for it then. I'm not sure what they would be worth now,
    and never plan to part with it.
    I was wondering with the (C) on the blade, would that give any idea of
    the actual year it was made?
