Disston D-12 Crosscut SawDisston D-12 Crosscut Saw  Nice Strong etch. Nice handle. Straight, 10pt.sharp and ready to go  The medallion reads Warranted Superior, I am not sure if it is original.

Disston D-76 Commemorative Bi-Centennial Rip SawDisston D-76 Commemorative 1876 - 1976 Bi-Centennial Saw  This unusual Disston saw was issued in 1976 as a special by the town of Danville VA for the bicentennial in 1976.  Danville VA was  the town that Disston had moved to after it was sold in the 1950's.  It is # 806 of 1000 made for that event and is in like new condition.

The collector ordered it, opened up the box to take a look and then put it back on the shelf to never be seen again till now.  It has the original display board,  the original paper wrap, and original shipping box.   It has a  strong etch describing the event with other info, and there is also a piece of brittle paper describing the event.  The handle is a nice design and this saw will be a welcome addition to the saw or tool collection.   Very few of these turn up and even fewer in this nice condition.  A must have for the complete Disston collection.    Nice

Fine . . . . . $200.00      SOLD!!


Disston Dome Nut 12 Inch BacksawEarly Disston Dome Nut 12" Backsaw  This unusual early Disston backsaw is pretty nice.  The blade is straight and has a lot of depth left.  There is some minor pitting that can be worked around if it is to be put back into use.  The teeth look ok and there are no broken ones, but it will need to be sharpened.

The brass back in addition to the Disston & Eagle logo is stamped spring steel / extra temper as well as the Phila. Pa location below the Federal Eagle.  The fruitwood handle is solid with just minor slivers / chips off the horns.  The threaded stud for the large dome nut where one would expect to see a stamped medallion is broken off and the dome nut on the back side is missing. 

A note about  the style of high dome nuts this saw has.  Cresson, an early Philadelphia PA saw maker used this style nut before Disston bought them out around 1860. According to the Disstonian Institute, a website about Disston Saws and their history,  Disston used this style nut on their handsaws in the 1860's - 1870's.  I found no reference or illustrations there about their use on back saws.   Given that the brass back is marked simply Disston and that this logo predates the use of the Disston and Son logo introduced in about 1865,  I believe we can safely date this saw as being from the Civil War era of 1860 - 1865.  An early and rare example of a finely made backsaw!!

Good . . . . . $325.00    SOLD!!
