It would seem there has been some new discussion on the use of the medallion in conjunction with the trade mark and the many variations of the Warranted Superior medallion that have appeared through the years. I am wondering if the large flat faceless medallions were created for those makers hadn\'t found a trade mark, didn\'t produce enough to justify making one for their product or really too early for the accepted style which became the norm? As an example I have included three saws by Thomas B Hawksworth who am assuming was from the partnership of Wilson, Hawksworth,Moss and maybe Ellison depending on the date of manufacture. Why only Thomas signed his saws is a mystery to me and if someone can share examples which might include the other names this would be interesting. The large close beech handled 14\" steel back was made of \"double refined\" cast steel. The dramatically curved handle sports three split screws with the third screw a 15/16\" \"flat brass medallion\". This wasn\'t a second grade saw when made so should have been advertised and proudly shown off as the better quality work. A smaller open handled beech 10\" steel back saw was also made with \"double refined\" cast steel. It has only two split nuts but unfortunately hasn\'t faired as well over the years. Stylistically the handle has the same flamboyant flare as the previous saw and would probably date to about the same time. Simply not enough room to fit in a third screw. The last saw also has Thomas B Hawksworth\'s name stamped into the the steel back but was made with \"German Steel\". It is also 10\" but the handle is significantly different in style from the previous two. Lesser quality? or from a different time. observations... not necessarily answers. cheers Joe Steiner Please see replys for pictures.
