Old well preserved Collins Machete. 22" in overall length with a 17 1/2" blade. Marked on the blade is Legitimus Collins & Co. Made in U.S.A. No. 127. Good condition considering what it may have been through! Sorry, the scabbard is rough so it is not offered.
Please view all the photos and e-mail any questions you may have. I try and let my photos show actual condition of the item. Be cautious of light glare or flash glare in photos. Please read the small print below photos. Small print may save big headaches.
I double box most fragile items. I put cardboard on all paper products. Do not ask for a reduction in shipping and handling, unless you plan on sending me the envelope, boxes and padding to go with it. Time is money, and wrapping these items properly requires time, and the purchase and/or collecting of the shipping containers, or packaging. I do not just "throw" them in an envelope or box. I use Media Mail, Priority Mail, Parcel Post Mail, along with UPS, FedEx and DHL. for shipping. The method of shipment is generally specified in the item description. I do however, retain the right to use a different method than described.
If I made an error in the description, and it is not what you thought it was, let me know, and I will refund your items purchase price, including shipping and handling charges. (That is once I get the item back in the same condition sent. Insurance is required on returned items.). Remember terms like "good, very good, nice," etc. are vague terms, but are common terms, that are used frequently by this market place. Terms like "new, mint" are not vague terms. I take numerous photos for visual inspection of condition, but you are expected to form your own opinion of condition or grade. You also can request additional photos and or ask additional questions concerning condition or grade. You must take some responsibility for what you purchase, as I do for what I sell, and tfore do not ask for a refund because of buyer's remorse! Items purchased and sent to an address other than the purchasers, are non-returnable.
If you want insurance, let me know. Items damaged in shipping that are not insured are your responsibility. Once it leaves , it is out of my control. If an item is insured, and it is damaged, DO NOT THROW THE BOX OR PACKAGE AWAY. DO NOT MAIL IT BACK TO ME. First e-mail me, then take it to the Post Office, or UPS immediately! Take it in the original box. If it appears it may have been damaged, open it in front of an agent when you get it. Insurance collection is your responsibility. I will send you the necessary papers and will work with you to help get this resolved.
I appreciate positive feedback. I leave feedback after you leave feedback indicating you are satisfied with the transaction.
