This is an original 1945 dated Legitimus Collins and Co manufactured machete. This machete is in original condition with areas of pitting on the blade. The grips are in good original condition with no damage and light handling marks throughout. The sheath is a rare and hard to find USMC marked canvas dated 1945. The condition of the sheath matches that of the blade. There are a couple of rust stains and some tearing at the end.
Overall, this is a neat machete and sheath that has that "straight out of the jungle" look to it!
