Got this at local estate sale that was in a pile of tools I think its a Civil War Era Amputation Saw. This piece is marked Jackson "5" Cast- Steel also the handle has the number 139 imprinted into the wood. The blade itself is about 11.5 in long the handle a couple more. Looks to be complete and in good shape for its period. Can anyone confirm this that's its a bone saw or the era its from or if they are common or rare.
