My Dad found these at a garage sale and neither of us had seen any like them, I would love to have some more info about their intended purpose. Any thoughts?

From the look of the teeth they look like they are pruning/green wood saws

Yep, for yard work. My Dad had several of these. When they are good and sharp they blaze through most moderate sized pruning jobs. I’d say clean them up and put them to work.

From the rusted appearance, I don’t think they can be restored and put back in service.
