Are you talking about a hospital corps knife? It depends on the blade maker (all scabbards are boyt) but generally they bring $150-$300 depending on condition and maker.

I bought one at an estate sale in oregon and it was pretty rusty. Paid $75 for it and it cleaned up well enough to be a keeper.

Check completed auctions on eBay and you will get an accurate sampling. Condition and maker is everything.

Are you talking about the Collins model 1250? If so, I bought one a couple yrs ago for about $85. It's more of a user than a collector's grade. Some of the collector grade ones were selling for almost double what I got mine for.

A little more information might be helpful, like a maker and model.
