    Hi all. I recently picked up another saw and got to work restoring it. Enough of the etch remained to indicate that it was a Sovereign #47. My understanding is that this was S + J's 2nd line of saws? Can anyone provide some sort of date of manufacture? The medallion was unusual to me in that it had a "rose" brass centre, surrounded by a yellow brass ring. Have others seen this? The saw was quite easy to sharpen, the plate feeling "softer" than others 20211202_165204.jpg 20211204_105134.jpg 20211204_105147.jpg 20211204_105453.jpg
