Circa 1860`s HENRY DISSTON & SON # 7 PATENT GROUND Saw (6 tpi) Split Nut EAGLE
- Source: eBay
Up for sale is a very Rare, Early, 1860`s HENRY DISSTON & SON No. 7 Hand Saw.I believe that it is from the 1860`s or earlier. Has the SON on the etching, not sons. Has the 1860`s Eagle Medallion with 4 Split Nuts. Marked with a "6" tpi. Still has the top Knib. The etching reads: HENRY DISSTON & SON PHILADELPHIA CAST STEEL 7 WARRENTED PATENT GROUND Measurers 30" overall with a blade of 26" by app. 2 3/4" on the tip to 7" near the handle. The blade has a small slight bend on the very tip otherwise it is pretty straight. Blade has rust and pitting but still appears to be solid. Etching is still quite readable. Handle has scratches, chips, and dings but no cracks or breaks still pretty solid. Not quite sure of the age but I went on the DISSTON Website and this looks about right. Please view the pictures and ask questions and if you think that I am wrong please let me know I am not a expert.
