Americal Colonial-era folding knife?
I rescued this one off of the scrap heap. It triggered in my mind that it could be an American Civil War era knife. Upon researching, I determined I was wrong by about 100 years. This looks most like knives from the colonial era/Revolutionary War. There seems to be a maker's mark stamped on the blade (last picture below), but I can't make out the details. I'm hoping someone can help me out. Also, any information anyone is willing to share about these, I'd love to learn more.
