This is a very rare late 1840s/ early 1850s (per Disstonianinstitute. Com) Disston handsaw. Medallion shows the late 1840s/ early 1850s eagle medallion with an, H. Blade is 20 long, my TPI gauge shows a measurement of 10 TPI. This is an unusual Disston from what I have seen; it is quite small and has only 3 fastening nuts. This is an old one! About 170 years old. From before Abe Lincoln was elected president, 161 years ago. The saw is in poor condition, with a lot of patina. Handle has a crack that has not fully separated (see photos). Handle has a lot of chips and wear. Blade is corroded on all surfaces. This saw got a lot of use, evidently. It is not like new, but it is the real deal, and the handle is not repaired or in pieces. It was found in an old house. The blade was lightly polished with 0000 grit sandpaper to scrub off residual rust. The handle was not polished, scrubbed or adjusted in any way. Original fastening nuts appear to have never been moved – they are neatly secured (although corroded). I have refrained from scrubbing the medallion in any way, and left the patina on. You could of course clean it up if you wish to do so. Saw is NOT in usable condition. This would be a display item, for the heirloom collector. Photos are of actual item. VERY RARE 1840s 1850s H.
