Topic tags/keywords: question

I have a saw that I can’t find any information on. It has an etch I’ve not seen before. I’m hoping someone out there can help me out. The picture of the etch isn’t the best but I’m just starting to clean it off. After removing the handle I noticed a “4H” on the top of the blade under the handle. After I cleaned off the medallion I was able to see that is has “Pat. Dec. 31 1867”.
