Very old Disston found in the south
#4
  Re: (...)
This is a saw I picked up this weekend here in northern Louisiana. I know it is an early Disston, but would like to know more detailed information on it from some of the saw experts. Everything is there, and straight, except for three split nuts. I am a user, not much of a collector. Not sure what I will do with it. I am curious about what it is worth, because I have not seen many of them this old for sale.
