BINGHAM'S BEST BRAND HAND SAWThe W. Bingham Hardware Co. was established in 1841 in Cleveland, Ohio. They specified products from the most established manufacturers and also carried their products. Bingham had their own brand of products which also carried varied names according to quality of product. BBB or Bingham's Best Brand was their best quality as the name implies. This saw resembles a Disston D-20 Ship Pattern saw. In fact in a 1918 Bingham catalog they have a BBB Ship Pattern saw listed that looks like this one. This is a light weight sway back narrow saw with an extra carved wheat pattern Apple wood handle, which is in perfect condition. The opening is large for the hand that was common during WWI. The saw is in exceptional condition. You can tell that from the pictures. If you need more pictures let me know. The saw measures 2" at the tip and 6 3/4" at the heel. It is 26" long and weighs only 1 3/4 lbs. T is one slight dent in the inscription on the saw. It shows in the photo. This saw is a scarce item to say the least, plus being in such great condition. It is very sharp. A little cleaning on your part and you'll have yourself a nice attractive scarce saw. You should notice in the picture of the reverse side that the original finish still exists. SHIPPING: I don't believe handling charges are a good idea. I saw a marked increase in shipping and handling charges by dealers on Ebay in 2007. 2007 had the highest inflation in 17 years and the government said that. We wouldn't have this mess if more people were savvy in economics. Boxes are free, so is most of the packing material, especially when you use USPS Flat Rate boxes. I get all kinds of boxes at the hardware store. Those that think they are going to get theirs first are going to lose in the end. The economic law of deminishing returns is still valid. This weighs in at a little over 1-lb so shipping will be based upon w you live. The shipping calculator will be set at 1-2 lbs. I will combine shipping when possible. It's the easiest way to pay. Otherwise a MO will do, but that costs you. Educate yourself, t is a lot of good reference material on this tool and other tools available on the MID-WEST TOOL COLLECTORS website;
