There are two variations of guard marked W49's. I own one which is believed to be the 3rd variant of the Western W49 Bowie knife. It is stamped " WESTERN BOULDER / COLO. USA on one side and BOWIE on the other. It can also be identified by the smaller pins in the handle. The 4th variant, I believe, is similarly guard marked and stamped "W49" instead of Bowie, like the 3rd variant, on the pile side. The 4th variant also has larger pins.
