Can anyone give me any info on this Disston nest of saws I got any collection that I bought? Are they all there? Is what is there what was included in the nest of saws?

I can’t seem to find much info on them at all. I can take better pics if needed. Maybe some of the etch in the plates?

Also, I could use some advice on how to best preserve them? As you can see, the case is rotting away and the plates have some spot rust, which I can take care of, but what do you guys think?

Brandon, this page in a 1929 Disston catalog shows a very similar saw, but only three blades.
