I recently got this old hand saw at an estate sale. the handle is attached to the blade with a three piece brass bracket and fastened with copper rivets. the blade is 18” long x 5” high. looking for some help id’ing this saw. I can send pics direct by e-mail if this attachment does not open

It may be a Harvey Peace (Vulcan Saw Works), and then again, it may be a Disston product.

thanks johnny7 for your reply with link. it appears it is indeed a Harvey Peace design perhaps carried over when Peace was acquired by Disston Saw. No markings of any kind on the blade. I can’t tell to my untrained eye if it has ever been sharpened beyond the initial tooth set. blade has a bow so it looks like a cool 100 year old wall hanger. 50 cents well spent. actually 1 buck including two Tom Clancy hardcovers.
thanks again!
