Looking at the emblems and Disston Online Reference, looks like I have 3 Disstons (D23, D95, and unknown) but all medallions are Disston USA which means after the war.
I have one E.C. Atkins with AAA medallion which is dated 1893-1952.
I have one E.C. Atkins partially etched, but no medallion on handle.
I have one Warranted Superior with the eagle wings folded along side, not out sprayed like most medallions.
And then a couple Spear & Jackson backsaws, wzeyak & sons backsaw, etc.
Looks like it’s hit or miss for pre-war / post-war. I’ll continue with these saws since I have no others, and practice sharpening, jointing, etc.
