Overall ready to use Miter Box with Saw that gives grand heritage to tool making excellence from the USA.
Miter Box - Langdon Acme Miter Box No. 74C Miller Falls CO. Greenfield, Mass
Saw - Cast Steel (Henry Disston & Sons) Philad’a, USA Warranted, 11-TPI.
Age is the only wear this Miter Box has contended with, having been used correctly as intended over the decades since made. The Henry Disston & Sons Saw carries a sharp cutting edge, likely similar to when originally placed into service. The Apple Wood Handle retains some of its original clear coat finish, which has become embrittled with expected loss.

No observed pitting or detrimental surface etching indicated. Most all bearing surfaces appear as would be when originally sold. Brass Buffer Guards in guides for saw placement display adequate limits, which would allow ready use of the Miter Box. All Turn Set Screws show proper and original washer/ spacer combinations, other threaded retainers allow for turning. Some slot heads show tool wear, burring. Springs, where positioned have proper tensions. Friction Locks for Front and Rear Guide adjustment work as expected. The angle adjustment control operates smoothly and locks steadfast. Original label has one edge damaged, likely due to area of placement where handling occurs.
Depending on next owner's ability, should allow for the Miter Box to be restored to a near original appearance with cleaning, updating hardware, plating, and refinished paint colors in an anticipated restoration, if desired.
Having personally restored similar aged equipment this one is a good candidate.
