It wouldn't surprise me, Dick. I have seen a couple of excellent reproduction Springfield Model 1880 Hunting Knives. The tip-off is usually the stamping of the serial numbers on that one, but I don't believe that the Hospital Knife bears a s/n. I would think that the etched panel on the Hospital Knife would be hard to copy and would be a giveaway.
