Hi Ketten09,

"99.99 euro plus 11 euro shipping" - exactly what I was referring to when I said that I did not want to buy one at a possibly inflated price.

I have already been watching this and it will be interesting to see if it sells at that price.

Certainly too much for my pocket money that I get

Kind regards,

Pete.

Im with Pete on that wrench too....bit high in price & the markings look odd.

They look like they were stamped by hand rather than machine rolled.

It could be a very late war made tool, when quality standards were low?? I doubt its a "field made" example.

Id go for it if it had a reasonable starting bid or Buy Now price...99E + shipping & exchange puts it out of contention.

Your right,

I thought the same about the markings - and especially that it looks so Shiny and New.
Look at the angle of Z's 2 and 3.



I would say that these letters are all indevidually stamped on.

Certainly does not look field used even though there are signs of pitting.



I did make him an offer but I have had no reply.

Will be an interesting one to watch.

Kind regards,

Pete.

Pete,

Something I just noticed.

The tool end has been welded to the handle.....



Now not having one in my collection or having one in my hands, this may be how these are made. Tool end is machined & the welded to the handle section.

Or this was a field repair....🧐

I think it looks so clean because it’s been wire wheeled or at least chemically treated to clean off the rust.

Appart from the 'A' - all the rest of the letters and numbers look very fresh Glen.

Shame that there are no pictures of the other side other than this - but I see what you mean about the join line/area.



Did you notice the Castle imprint just before the stamped letters?



Could be Toolmakers logo/stamp - Might be worth investigating.

Kind regards,

Pete.

My first thoughts on the tool markings they are unit marks.

Thanks for that 'lugernut',

He has another one for sale on EBay !



I first thought that it was the same one as before so I contacted him.
Apparently he has a few of them

Kind regards,
Pete.
