I cleaned a saw I bought the other week thinkiing it was a US (most likely Disston because of the shape of the "shield" in the centre of the circle in the medallion) Warranted Superior and found that some of the etch remains. What I can read (I doubt it will photograph) reads: JACKSON (in an arc) ESTABLISHED (FONT A THIRD THE SIZE OF ABOVE) 1840 WAR S(?)TONES CAST STEEL ( outer words in an arc) The "shield" shape is repeated in the etch, with the surrounding words in what would be mantling in heraldic terms. (sorry for the clumsy description) The handle is beech the blade (along the teeth) 20" and it has a nib. It is 8 points to the inch. This is the handle, if it is of any help: https://picasaweb.google.com/timrobinson22/Saws?authkey=Gv1sRgCMy2rJ-4l9HslgE#5778340228117501330 Any suggestions welcome. HSMOB does not seem to help, nor does googling. Regards and thanks in advance. Tim PS Yesterday's acquisition was a quite nice Disston 7, 1897-1917, for $5.
