     I recently bought these for my small collection of old tools, American Secateurs. No makers name just Made in USA and letter S

    The overall length is 7" and the jaws are 3/4" which is about the maximum one can cut even with modern secateurs. As can be seen the safety catch is missing as is the spring, the remnants of which can be seen in the upper handle. The blade is damaged, but originally cut down between the two sections of the lower handle onto an anvil secured by the two rivets on the lower jaw.

    Does anyone know perhaps date or maker or maybe have some similar?

    From what I have seen in gardening museums they are machine made my guess would be 1910-1930
