Mods, please delete if this thread is inappropriate. I read through the posting rules and saw nothing indicating it was verbotten, but I know on many sites there are unwritten rules against things like this.

My question is…..

Can anyone here help me assign a value to 3 disston hand saws I have? I have two d-23s, and one d-95.

I can post pictures, however I’d rather wait to make sure this type of post is ok here.

I don’t think there will be an issue with your post. Put up some pictures and I’m sure you’ll get some opinions. Looking at similar saws that have sold on ebay is another good way to determine value.

Guess it didn’t.

If you click on the links in my first picture post, you can see the entire photos.

One thing the saws have going for them is they are in decent condition, i.e. not badly rusted and handles not broken. Two of them are worn down from past sharpenings. Later model D-23’s aren’t worth much, but would be decent user saws in a home shop. If I were selling them on ebay, I’d start them at $9.99 and be happy if they sold for that. The D-95 is not a common saw and not especially desirable as a user. It could have some appeal to the right collector. If the right person saw it, it could bring as much as $50.
