Hello: I justed picked up an old handsaw that has what appears to be an indian pole vaulting, and is marked E.C. Atkins, and Record Breaker. I cannot find any history on this saw when I google it. Does anyone have any info., such as when made, and the reason for the unusual markings?
PS. This is my first post, so if a picture is needed, I will try and upload one, if needed.
Edit: I took some pictures and hope they upload. I believe this saw was made in the 1912-1913 range, to commemorate Jim Thorpes performance in the Olympics, but just a guess.
