Item S4 - Jackson (Disston) No. 1 Tenon Saw. 

Most of the Jackson (a Disston brand) back saws that I see are the open handle dovetail type saws.  This closed handle tenon saw is a lot more scarce.  This one has a shapely handle in the Disston form, with graceful horns that have no damage.  The blade is dead straight with a 12” edge length and steel spine.  There is a slight tilt to the blade which has 2 ¼ under the spine at the to, and 2 ½” at the heel.  The filing is about 13 ppi, cross cut.  It could use sharpening, but will cut “as is.”  There are two brass saw screws with slotted nuts, including a “Warranted Superior” medallion having a fairly elaborate eagle.  The spine is stamped, “Jackson” in an arc, with “Warranted  Cast Steel” on either side of the largest “USA” stamp that I’ve seen on a back saw.  Good+.
