I have for sale a Collins and Company "Legitimus" machete (14 inch blade) complete with leather sheath, in virtually pristine condition.
Blade collectors will know of this Hartford, Connecticut, Massachusetts, which has been around since the early 1800's.
Collins and Company has been making axes and blades since 1826, and was one of the producers of swords for the Civil War. The company had contracts for 1000 musician swords and 648 NCO swords, in addition to its orders for officer swords. Also, Marine NCO swords were made by this company. After the war, the company continued to make swords that were used in later conflicts in South America, and had US government contracts to make machetes up through WWII. A late version of their mark includes the word ‘Legitimus.’
Please private message me for pictures if interested.
