Help identifying model and year...

Wondering if anyone can help identify the model of this blade. There is name etching on the blade and the faded name written on the back of the sheath does match. As you can see in the picture it appears from me sheath that this knife should be a model 1-7 But I am not certain. I had listed this knife for sale without putting a model in the description and with all the pictures that you see. After the sale was final I regretted selling it instead of keeping it in my collection. Luckily the seller has requested to return it stating that the blade is not a model one like indicated on the sheath. I am more than happy to take it back to keep it in my collection but I'm just curious if somebody could help me identify the actual model. Let me know if the image links do not work they are from my Reddit post.

It's a Model #5. Both Model #5 and Model #1 use the same sheath. In more recent decades the Randall Shop stamps these sheaths only with the blade length (in this case, seven inches), and no longer with the model number.

Date of package lies from early 1964 to early 1966 based on stamp. At that time it seemed to be common to send model 1 or 5 sheaths without regard to matching sheath number with knife model (blades were roughly the same). I would speculate that people complaining about mis-matched numbers was why Mr. Randall finally opted for removal of the model number from the sheath leaving just the length. Problem solved.
