The Atkins, I would bet, is a No. 51; the screw pattern matches that better than it does the 53/58/59 saws.   A real fine saw; my go-to rip saw is a No. 51.   Lots of those old ones lost the nickel-plating on the screws over time.

The reason for the 53 number?    Saw has a skew back.   Confused
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Not to worry, 51's came in a few shapes.  My No. 51 is a skew-back for sure.   The No. 53's always had some more ornamentation and a different handle shape.  And the 58/59 types didn't have as many tote screws as yours has.
