Chik - I am surprised by the number of Disston variations there seem to be for this tool ! Mine has the same Maker's Mark - but no grommet around the knurled knob on the sliding face. Mine has 2 brass wear strips on face instead of full brass face. Catalogues also show variations. A great, working tool.
