Every Simonds 503 Royal Chinook I've seen has the half tooth at the end, like yours. I know there are a few other lance bucking saws that do that too, but do you have a 503 you could lay over it? Even if it is a different length, the tooth pattern should match. (Unless they were made decades apart, I have seen some slight variations, too). In other words, it could confirm, but not cancel out, the possibility of it being a 503.

Why no pictures of this lovely mural??? I need ideas for when I finally get around to painting all my 503's... :P

Ahhh! The 7 1/2 teeth on each end is what caught my eye on this saw.
No 503s around to compare it to.
This is my only picture of the lovely mural:

Ha! Nice, the murals look better that way anyhow. I will see what I can do to help you out this weekend, but I am away from home till then. Have you. He checked the teeth, ends and middle back with a micrometer yet?

At least some 520s have the half tooth as well, but they have the narrow gullets and those weird tiny half-moon cutouts on the back near the ends.
