Henry Disston - Very Early Handsaw

One of the earliest saw made by Henry Disston.  We can assume that it was made in early 1840s, when Henry didn't even have his medallion made.  Instead, he used blank medallion, often used by very early English sawmakers.

Apple handle with one blank medallion and three split nut screws.

Henry Disston stamp.

The nib on this saw is cut with sharp angles.

The saw from the Jim Bode collection
