Vintage 1902-1924 HSB & Co No. 82, OVB Crosscut 26" Hand Saw, Etched Blade

Description

Vintage HSB & Co. No. 82, skewback handsaw with etched blade (see photo) that reads No. 82, HSB & Co., OVB, Our Very Best, Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett & Co., State Street Bridge, Chicago . Additionally, the blade is faintly etched (see photo) with the following:

“This saw is made of Highest Quality of Crucible Steel Tempered and Set by Experienced Workmen and it has no superior. A. C. Bartlett, Chairman”

HBS & Co. occupied a building at State Street Bridge, Chicago from 1903 until 1924, suggesting this is an earlier version of this No. 82.

Crosscut, 9 point blade measures 26 inches long and shows some rusting in spots including over a section of the etched main logo. The carved ornate applewood handle shows wear and has 4 plated brass screws (one with the HSB OVB Chicago logo).
