This saw appeared on eBay in
January, 2015. Unfortunately, I didn't make a note on sale price
but I know it was high
and beyond my pay grade.
Medallion is the obvious item that
pops in everybody's eye right away. I have never seen medallion
like this, neither anybody I know in this business.
The handle is also one of a kind
and I am tempted to say that this is one of these handles made
by hand in his shop.
The blade is 26-1/2 inch long. Nib
is present and it looks like it has been hand-filed. The teeth
are filed crosscut with rather shallow set.
Enjoy the pictures!
This is a full stamp on the blade. There is a lot of information
Unfortunately, some of the text is unreadable from these photos.
At the top there are three eagles.
Different view - just two of these eagles. In this view it is
see beautifully formed and actually very crisp stamps.
Next is word "EXTRA".
It appears to have at least two letters - "R" and "A"
