26in 8PPI Crosscut Handsaw.
This saw was made for R.C. Watson which I assume was a hardware retailer. It has the typical look of a late 1800s handsaw with a cast steel blade, die-stamped logo, beech handle, and split saw screws. The plate is dead straight and has its original nib. It's usable but there are some issues. There are several broken teeth. The handle has a nicely repaired top horn. The back has some pitting. It needs to be re-toothed- if made into a rip saw the pitting won't be an issue. It'll take a little work but it's a good-looking saw and well worth it.

Wheeler, Madden, and Clemson Holden Patent Handsaw.
This handsaw has no maker's etch I can see but the handle is stamped with the June 3, 1879 patent date which is Holden's patent for the thumb notch. The handle is beech and has no chips or cracks. the plate is dead straight. It has some discoloration but no pitting. There are two broken teeth- one at the very tip of the toe, the other at the heel. Neither will be a problem. The saw is 26in with 8PPI. It's a good usable saw that needs just a filing to have it running again.

This saw was made by the Richardson Brothers in Newark, NJ. It was custom-etched for the Bartlett & Co, a hardware dealer in Lowell, MA. The plate is dead straight and quite clean. It's 8PPI rip, which is a rare configuration to find. The beech handle has a small chip in the top horn. The teeth are in excellent condition and need just a light filing. A rare panel rip saw that will make a fine worker.

Richardson Brothers no. 9 26in Crosscut Handsaw.
This is a later Richardson saw made in Newark, NJ. It has a clear etch on the plate. The plate is dead straight and 7PPI crosscut. The teeth are all in good shape and quite sharp. I've tested it and found that it cuts decently. It could use a quick filing to get it running perfectly. the handle is oddly modern-looking for a Richardson handsaw, which were made only up to about 1915 or so based on my research. It could be a replacement but there are no marks on the plate from a previous handle. Regardless, it's a user, not a collector's item. It'll work just fine and will make a great general-purpose crosscut saw.
