Info on JH Nobel saw wanted.

Hi,
just picked up an old JH Noble back saw. Its 12" by 2.5" and 9pp1. On the saw it says J.H.Nobel no. 1.
I'm looking for info on this saw. Such as when it was made, purpose etc.
Thanks for any help.

There are a lot of handsaw guys who hang out in the handtools section at www.woodnet.com. Maybe it's a .org.
But they seriously know their stuff on old saws.
