Item S7 - Henry Disston No. 7 Hand Saw. 

This saw is strongly stamped “Henry Disston” in the “inch worm” pattern on the “blade, and more lightly underneath, “Philadelphia” and under this  “Cast Steel - 7 - Warranted”.  The “inch worm” mark dates the saw to the 1850s.  This is confirmed by the handle medallion, which is an eagle surrounded by “H. Disston” and “Phila” with a large terminal “A.”  The Eagle and the Phila generally coincide with medallions that Erik Von Sneidern notes as dating to the early 1850s.  The saw plate on this saw is 26 inches long, and has good depth.  The nib is present and is well set back from the  toe..  There is moderate tarnish on the  blade and almost pitting.  The blade is straight and is filed 7 ppi, rip.  It needs sharpening. The beech handle has no cracks, but chipping has shortened the upper horn.  “Smith” stamped his name in block letters on both sides of the handle a long time ago.  It is a good saw for a collection, with a mark that is not tool common.  Good+
