    Swap meet Hand Saw

    My Neighbor knows I like the old rusty tools that need a home He picked up 2saws for $5 This one might be kind of rare Sold by HSB and Co. which in early 60's became True value The Ovb(Our very best) logo was likely stamped on by Disston It is cast metal blade guessing 1930's or so Might have been a "Nest Saw" with interchangeable blades Not sure the species of handle Glad this one made it my way
