Two girls on my street were looking in the hollow of a tree and found a rusty old machete inside. They showed it to me and I sharpened it and removed the rust. Underneath that “coat of rust”, just above the hilt on one side was inscribed: U.S. 965 and on the other side was: 1904 (which we think is the date).
I took a few photo’s, so if you can tell me anything about it (it’s value, what 965 means e.t.c.) I’d be much obliged.
