    Yes, it is a Vietnam era piece. They were available to soldiers at PX's.
    '1209' is the model number. ( I too own one of these )
    The handle is resin impregnated.

    On your example above, the pommel is situated upside-down....... !

    So the longer end of the pommel should be on the edge side of the blade? Is this a manufacturing error? Could I get $20 for it?

    Yes, it looks like a manufacturing error........
    You should be able to get at least that much for it.

    I've seen mint examples going for $50, and even more.
