Got a Camillus Cub Scout knife and an Imperial Boy Scout Knife here. The Cub Scout knife I bought with several other scout items that were 1950s so I would estimate 1950s for it. Although knives like it were sold through the 1960s and probably the 1970s too. I see this knife fairly often .
The Boy Scout knife was made by Imperial. Not sure if it was after the Imperial/Schrade merger. If I recall correctly they go overseas in the 1980s. One source dated this as 1950s but I would not bet the farm on that. This one is especially nice as the Fleur de Lis emblem is intact. Usually it is partly rubbed off.
Finally in photo #4 shows how it was often carried. Personally I prefer the belt pouch but the belt hook is nice too plus it official BSA approved.
