Item S10 - J. D. Rogers & Bro.(Philadelphia) Hand Saw. 

 

A very unusual saw, the clear etching on this darkly tarnished blade reads, “J.D. Rogers & Bro./ 4111A & 4111B / Lancaster, Ave. / Philadelphia / Warranted Cast Steel [in a banner}.  The blade is 26 inches long and is filed 12 tpi cross cut, and needs sharpening.  The straight blade has a tiny nib, with out much of a cut out to the toe.  The handle is “different”, being a simple beech one, without carving.  But it is jazzed up with narrow curved and decorated brass plates on each side marked,

“Wm. McNiece Phila. Pa. / Pat. Apr. 18, ‘82”. 

Rogers & Bro. was a hardware store that sold McNiece Saws.  The patent is No. 256,493 for a Saw Handle Clamp awarded to William McNiece.  This is certainly an uncommon saw, and a good one for a collection.  Good+
