Today I bought this antique backsaw for $95. It has no rust and looks like it’s in great shape. Very sharp and the blade is very straight with no pitting. The handle has a medallion on it dated 1887. On the reverse it is stamped with WMTS LETTERS.
Does anyone know anything about the DISSTON backsaw?
