Stumbled on to this little guy today,  Anyone have an idea of year and what it might be worth these days. 
I haven't bought it yet, would like to know more about it. I will just hang it on the wall .

Never seen one like it. I suspect an O&R engine

Does any of the writing on the left side provide any clues? It is to small for me to read. The color suggests, maybe Husky of some sort. Just a stab.

I did some searching last night, and "paul bunyan" is a difficult search term regarding chainsaws. You might want to try "chip-a-saw". Looks like the same saw with a different sticker, but still not a lot of info.

Ok thanks everyone for the help, I brought it home yesterday so I'm the new custodian now.

It is missing the starter pull rope knob.  It is supposed to look like a round rubber ball like this one in the picture I found on the WWW.    
Would any of you guys happen to have one I could buy?



This picture taken from the WWW.  for reference , Not mine!

I think I recognize that engine, what is it on? My dad had one on a cute little generator, and as I recall, it had the same handle shown here. If this is the one I am thinking of, when looking at this photo, if you looked at it from the right side, you would see a flat (thin) aluminum plate that made the final closure on that die cast gas tank. He had leaking problems at that seal he never really could solve.  Cute little thing, ran like a bandit.

I ain't the woodcutter, but I can cut wood 'til the woodcutter gets here. OK, maybe I am the woodcutter now.
