WWII ERA LEGITIMUS COLLINS & CO. MACHETES, C. 1945, TWO PCS., L 18" AND 17" BLADES

One machete (18" blade) marked "US Legitimus Collins & Co 1945" under a crown with arm holding hammer, looks to be an USN MK-1 machete but is not marked as such. Second machete (17" blade) marked " Legitimus Collins & Co Made in USA No 127" under a crown with arm holding hammer. The 1945 machete includes a leather scabbard.

Bothe blades show pitting. Both handles some some wear from age. Overall fair conditions. The leather scabbard shows surface scratching and wear. An illegible name was written on the leather.
