These blades look exactly like yours but a magnet sticks to them and the edges are worn and slightly rusted.I know they used a lot of steel blades, probably 1917-18, maybe a bit more.   I 've heard that some were painted gold and some brass plated but never found out the exact details.   1920-30 were all polished brass blades.
