I have a Case knife with "CS" engraved on the blade... what is it?

As for knives, I am an eclectic accumulator: if it looks neat, appeals to me, is affordable and can be negotiated down in price, I will try to own it. Sadly, I am at that point in my adventures where my souvenirs are beginning to own me, rather than I possess them.
As I simplify my life and distribute my largess, I find myself with a knife I cannot but vaguely recall obtaining. It is a Case Classic 53091, 1990, 4-9/16 inches long whittler, with beautiful honest-to-goodness stag scales. On the pile-side bevel of the blade is scribed the small upper case letters "CS". Scribed or engraved, not stamped as the usual lettering.
I suspect that this is a "second". "CS" means "Case Second"??? Looking very closely, I can see where the stag scale on the master blade end is just slightly thinner than the bolster: the bolster stands slightly proud. There is a 1/4 inch section of the end of the scale that looks over-ground - making it thinner than the bolster it's surface is supposed to meet.
I have only seen one other Case second, and that had the "CASE" name ground from the blade. Is this a second? Sure would like to hear from an expert on this one!!!
