Item S4 - Henry Disston No.7 Hand Saw. 

   

 

 

 

This older saw is all original with the right handle, etc.  The saw is 28 inches long and is filed 5 ppi rip.  The blade is marked “5” at the heel.  The blade retains its nib, and does suffer some light pitting in well scattered patches on the left side.  The blade is marked by its serif-rich etching (that dates it to the middle 1860s), and is about 80 percent readable.  The beech handle has a shortened upper horn, and has an old (and tight repair to a crack just above the bottom of the hand hold.  The medallion is marked, “H Disston” and has the small raised “A” on the “Philada”.  The American eagle on the medallion is the left-looking level headed one.  This is a fairly uncommon coarser rip saw in the 28” size that will make a great user, even if it is 160 years old.  Saws with “Henry Disston” etches are not common.  This is one of those.  Easily Good.
