My user stash had led me to believe that spine stamping and etches were usually
mutually exclusive (Disston being a notable exception). Groves, Moulson Bros,
and a few others have stamping but no discernible etch (though I can't rule out
disappearance over time). My Atkins and a Warren & Ted have an etch but no spine

Did any British backsaws have an etch? I should pull HSMOB off the shelf and see
what it says, since I have a tiny sample size here.
