Topic tags/keywords: help hand saws vintage disston peace

I grabbed these 2 saws not too long ago. Wondering if anyone knew what models they are? I found some info on the Peace but the Disson’s writing is too faint for my old eyes. Thanks guys!

Your Disston is a No 7 (not a D-7)

I was leaning towards it being a 7! Thanks Johnny, I appreciate you sharing your knowledge, so it’s a 7 from about the 1920s?? It’s in pretty good shape for the $1.00 I paid for it! Disston has pretty good info online, lots of info on their website but I’m a carpenter not a scholar, when there is that much info it turns into all Greek to me!

1896 to 1917 possibly looking at the medallion.
