Default Ka-Bar Fighting Knives

Guys, I have a couple Ka-Bar knives I believe are from the WWII era although neither are USMC marked. Both are marked on the blade KA-BAR OLEAN, NY. They both have unmarked leather scabbards. Based on that information, can anyone tell me which is the earlier example and whether or not they might be WWII or post war.
