Trying to find out the manufacturer of this vintage hacksaw, but no company logo or notation. Frame has “REISSUE PAT NO 20252”, but nothing else. Plastic handle has “MADE IN USA” on one side, “SHOCKPROOF” on the other. I’ve tried to research the Patent Number and handle notations, but no luck in determining the manufacturer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here are a few pictures:

Patent information: Jan. 26, 1937.` D. E. PRIEST Re. 20,252 HACKSAW FRAME CONSTRUCTION
and the reissue was listed as to the Parker Wire Goods Company, Worcester, Mass.

No way to tell when that particular one was made however.
