Atkins hand saw
« on: November 03, 2017, 10:50:49 AM »
I'm cleaning up an Atkins No. 62 7point handsaw.  Sheffield from Indianapolis.  The etch is faint, but shows an Indian in headdress, holding a hatchet.
Anyone have an idea of its age?

Thank you.  I was eventually able to decipher the top word on the etch:  CHIEF

That's it.  The configuration of the etch is slightly different, as is the font.  Mine is likely a bit earlier or later.
