Antique Rip Hand-Saw Eagle Medallion 5 1/2 TPI
This is a very nice rip hand-saw marked, WARRANTED SUPERIOR" on the nickel plated brass medallion on the handle, and the medallion has the Eagle inside the center circle. Nice clean handle with some edge wear, some scratches, minor staining, one chip off the upper ear of the handle. The brass hardware appears clean and in good condition, some brass showing through the nickel plating. The 26" long blade is about 99% straight, just about perfect, cuts just fine, with light staining, a few small areas of minor pitting, the teeth are in very good condition, no missing teeth, about 99% sharpness. There are 5 1/2 teeth per inch, and is marked "5 1/2" on the blade under the handle. I can't make out any etch on the blade, but it is an turn of the century handle style, in the unusual 4 screw/nut handle. Nice!
