This is a fake W J McElroy Bowie knife ofter seen for sale on internet auction sites.  Do not be tricked by the fake markings.  McElroy never made such a knife nor marked blades in the way.  A date stamp is a dead give-away.   Run from it.

This is a another fake attributed to W J McElroy.

Do not be fooled because there is a name etched in the blade.
