George Hall Saw

Philip Lean of Canberra   is interested in finding out about a very old saw he bought in a  secondhand/recycling store in Canberra, Australia.

The saw has the name “The George Hall Saw” “Sheffield”. This name is listed as a Type 3 name in the TATHS article 'When was a sawmaker not a sawmaker?'

( http://taths.org.uk/tools-trades/articles/50-when-was-a-sawmaker-not-a-sawmaker ), meaning it might be just a name used for sales, Philip is not trying to trace it’s actual origin.
The blade is very rusted and the rivets holding the handle are loose and worn and the handle is soft and worn, but it will be a interesting project to restore the saw to working condition. 
The blade after cleaning is between 0.8mm and 0.7 mm thick and has a varying tooth pattern

Philip  would like to know roughly when it was made and if possible information on the type of steel was used to make the cutting blade. 
Any information would be appreciated.
