I bought these 40 years ago and just kept them. I was told they were from the late 1800's when I bought them. I cannot find any pictures of them or information. The tail is different from newer stork scissors and it is not attached to the handle, but actually juts out separately and the stork head has a tiny crown feather that sticks out from the head. In picture 2, it shows the tooth of Keen Kutter sticking through piece of wood and in picture 3, shows Simmons Hardware Co. These are, from tip to tip closed, about 4 1/2". The pointed beak is perfect on them.

I know the logo of Keen Kutter was adapted in late 1800 and that Simmons Hardware Co adapted Keen Kutter logo around 1870.
Does anyone have any information other than what I have, and any idea if they have a value?
