Antique J Taylor & Son Advanced Back Saw Sheffield Mid-Late 1800's

This is a wonderful antique that we recently acquired at an auction in NH at an old farm. It is an J Taylor & Son 9" back saw. The binding on the blade is marked with "J Taylor & Son Advanced Sheffield" It also shows the horse? / animal logo and it is also marked "Cast Steel". The grip has a nice medallion and 2 screws - all three are split-nut type. The medallion is marked "Taylor & Son Sheffield" and shows what I believe is an Eagle in the center of the medallion. After looking and researching a few websites, I am guessing this piece dates in about the mid to late 1800's. I have read many articles regarding the Sheffield saw companies, and this is the best I can figure. The grip is in okay to good condition. It has it's tool box nicks and scratches. There is also a split by one of the screws. The medallion and other 2 nuts are in good condition. The blade appears to be in very good condition also - well taken care of over the years. Blade is slightly loose in the handle.
Please keep in mind that I will gladly combine shipping whenever possible. I add a dollar for the first extra item and 50 cents for each after that. Thank you for your time and enjoy your day!
