Hey-I'm guessing. She's not soft,that for sure-but could be nickel or some form of 'oid,'ode,or 'ine. Canadian would make me happy...what I'm hoping is she's not European. Looks American,looks railroad...somebody convince me please? Don't lie to me though! :lol:

Marty,
Judging by the design of the case it's late 1800's anyways. I can see why you went for it, and like I told you earlier no mention of this company in Niebling's book nor in Ehrhardt's. Unless someone on here has a good book about other cases, we can only assume, but I go with Canadian myself!

MartyW,
I've seen the arrow cases in Niebling's book and that's all they say in the case. The Royal golden has a banner on the case with the words in it. I still haven't found any reference to Royal Arrow with the arrow in the middle. I also noticed that the case has a retention screw in the pendant which fits the late 1800 time period. They didn't start using the screw in collars until early 1900's.

All I can do is pass along the only information that I could find...that's all. Now it''s up to the experts to go from there as I have done my bit.

Admittedly I thought the Arrow case in the book may have been a possibility myself, but had to rule it out. Both words would have to be there along with a reference to the arrow symbol.
